This Scottish links-style course was built on 220 acres of rolling terrain, woods and wetlands. The greens vary in size, but are relatively fast. Water hazards (wetlands and ponds) come into play on many holes. The signature hole is #16, a 137-yard, par 3, requiring a downhill tee shot from an elevated tee to a well-bunkered green that is surrounded by trees. The extra hole on this course is called "Super-Mulligan" because you can hack away to your heart's content, secure in the knowledge that nothing you do counts against your score. This hole derives its name from a stone set in the middle of the fairway. If you manage to hit the "Blackthorn Blarney Stone" with your tee shot, the reward is a free ball imprinted with the Blackthorn logo. This club hosted a U.S. Open qualifier in 1995. "Golf Digest rated this as the 4th "Best New Public Course" in America for 1995. In addition, "Golf Digest" rated this course as the 5th "Best Public Course" in the state for 1996, and 20th best under the category of "America's Top 75 Affordable Courses." The same publication rated it as the 8th "Best in State" course for 1997-98. The Blackthorn Golf Academy is located on the premises. For more information, call (800) 450-4146.
