This resort has three regulation eighteen hole courses. The North Course is a combination of two different style nines. One nine is very long and features numerous water hazards, while the other nine is a target course highlighted by a number of environmental areas. The signature hole is #1, a 560-yard, par 5, with a dogleg right fairway where you must clear an environmental area off the tee, then clear another environmental area on the approach shot to the green. The South Course is a fair and relaxing course to play. The fairways are wide open, and the greens are medium-sized. The signature hole is #17, a 190-yard, par 3, requiring a tee shot over water to a two-tiered green that has a stream guarding its entire left side. The East Course is the most difficult because of the tree-lined fairways that are very narrow. The small greens are undulating and well-bunkered. There is water that comes into play on hole #13, a 185-yard, par 3. The signature hole is #4, a 445-yard, par 4, requiring a tee shot up a dogleg right fairway. The driving range has eight heated stations. You must be a guest staying at the hotel or a member to play these courses.

|This course was made on the "wetlands" (in Howard County?) and because the "designers" (read owners) had to work around so many natural areas, it is mostly rinky-dink. Extreme doglegs with long second shots into sloped greens. Blind shots. Newer holes were worked into the old courses and you have a "new" green on one hole and an "old" green on the next and the grasses are different. Try getting used to that! Poorly maintained, crowded. Nice hotel pool, that the members couldn't use when I was a member.|
