This resort, which made "GOLF Magazine's" 1998 list of "Silver Medal Resorts," has five eighteen hole courses. The Champion Course was redesigned by Jack Nicklaus in 1990. The finishing holes, #15, #16, and #17, are known as the "Bear Trap," because they all require shots over water. This course is the site of the Senior's PGA Championship. "Golf Digest" ranked this course 72nd under the category of "Top 75 Resort Courses" for 1992. In addition, "GOLF Magazine" rated this course as 70th under the 1996 category of "Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S." The most scenic hole is #5. The General Course favors a Scottish-links tradition with undulating fairways, numerous grass bunkers, and a common green shared by holes #8 and #12. Water comes into play on sixteen holes. The Haig Course is the oldest of the five courses. Water comes into play on fifteen holes. Golfers often opt for either hitting over the water hazards or playing around them. The Squire Course is a "thinking man's course," requiring many accurate fairway wood and long iron shots in order to score well. The Estates Course is the newest of the five courses and will challenge any skill level. You may play nine holes only after 2 PM. The green fee rates shown are during peak season, and other seasonal green fees are offered by the resort.
