Client Course Description

Designed by Joe Lee and Dick Wilson, the South Course is considered to be the member’s favorite. The course is a challenging but fair layout that fully rewards strategy and accuracy. It’s a thinking person’s layout as course management takes on a high priority.

Designer Notes

Designer developed a master plan to help guide the club in a complete renovation of the golf course while also updating the golf course features to today’s standards. The renovations included a complete tee-to-green make-over, including new bunkers, design modifications that improve strategy and shot options, an all-new irrigation system, drainage and concrete cart paths. As part of the renovation, a new set of tees was added, measuring approximately 4,000 yards, to provide a shorter course playing option, allowing for 5 to 6 various tee settings and angles to challenge different levels of golfers.
