Course Details

Course architects, Stephen Kay and Doug Smith, let the shape of the land —with its swells and troughs —influence the shape of the holes. It has the links land character — fast turf, the opportunity to play bump and run, lethal rough and the shaggy browed bunkering reminiscent of the Old Country. The result is a challenging course with four sets of tees that stretches from 5,198 yards to nearly 7000 yards from the tips.

Kay and Smith designed the course to reward ball striking and course management. Play well, play smart and you will score well. Each hole has its own risk and reward with the wayward or overly aggressive player being bloodied by rough that just doesn’t quit. Kay designed the front nine to emphasize tactics and course management allowing a player to find their game and rhythm. From the tips, the first nine holes are not overly long. The 221-yard par-3 3rd hole does hint though at what a player will find waiting on the inward nine.

The first four holes on the back offer real scoring opportunities to the ball striker. Teeing up on the 14th though, a player realizes that they needed to bring one more thing to the Links, muscle. The last five holes offer the same risks and rewards as the first 14 holes, but they also offer length. From the tips, the two par-5s exceed 600 yards and two of the three par-4s are over 450 yards in length.
