This club has two excellent eighteen hole courses. In the past, this club hosted the U.S. Open in 1969 and the U.S. Amateur in 1993. The Cypress Creek Course is the more challenging course with out-of-bounds stakes lining every hole. "Golf Digest" rated this as the 3rd "Best in State" course for the years 1995 through 1998. "GOLF Magazine" awarded it 87th among the "100 Greatest Courses in the U.S." for 1995. "GOLFWEEK" selected it 69th among "America's 100 Best Classical Courses" for 1998 and 60th for 1999. Both courses feature tight fairways, and their greens are large and fast. Water hazards created by the Cypress Creek come into play several times. The terrain is flat and easy to walk. "Golf Digest" rated the Jack Rabbit Course as the 15th "Best in State" course for 1995-96, and the 18th best for 1997-98. In addition, "GOLFWEEK" named it 56th among "America's 100 Best Modern Courses" for 1998, and 68th for 1997 and 1999. The green fees indicated are reciprocal fees, which are good for all-day play.

Better hit it close on these monster greens, Jun 15, 2004
|In 30+ years, I do not recall playing on larger greens. From tee to green the course is interesting, but not that challenging (the course does favor length). The real challenge at this course is getting one's approach shot close enough to the hole to not 3-putt. Greens all have interesting rol and contour, so short putts can be a real test. Do not volunteer to play just before a tournament. The rough around the greens is grown, and is savage to get out of. To practice these shots, just step on a ball in deep bermuda.|
