This resort, which was named to "GOLF Magazine's" 1998 list of "Gold Medal Resorts," features two outstanding eighteen hole courses, plus a difficult nine hole executive course. The Gold Course has tight, rolling fairways and is designed to play around a five-acre lake, across ravines and through woodland glens. The greens are large and notorious for causing three putts. This course features dramatic changes in elevation, so expect some interesting lies in the fairways. "Golf Digest" rated this as the 4th "Best in State" course for 1995-96, and the 9th best for 1997-98. In addition, they rated 67th in the category of the "Top 75 Upscale Courses" for 1996. "GOLF Magazine" named it 57th among the "Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S." for 1998. The Green Course was selected by "Golf Digest" as the 9th "Best in State" course for 1995-96, and 8th best for 1997-98. Water hazards come into play on every course. The Spotswood Executive Course is tight and demanding with narrow fairways and small greens. The Spotswood Executive Course's scorecard doesn't show handicaps for individual holes. The Gold Course will be closed for renovation until July, 2000. Although metal spikes are allowed, soft spikes are preferred.
