This facility, which was named to "GOLF Magazine's" 1996 list of "Silver Medal Resorts," features three regulation eighteen hole courses and a sporty nine hole course. These courses were built on the highest elevated terrain in the local area. The North Course, rated by "Golf Digest" as the 39th best among the "Top 75 Resort Courses" for 1992, features open fairways, whereas the South Course has narrow fairways. "Golf Digest" also rated the South Course as the 3rd "Best Public Course" in the state for 1996. They also rated it as the 19th "Best in State" course for 1995-96, and the 20th best for 1997-98. The same publication ranked the South 38th out of the "Top 75 Resort Courses for 1992," and awarded it 75th among the "Top 75 Upscale Courses" for 1996.
