Golf TournamentAbout the Course
Set in the midst of an open meadow, the Links Course is Jack Nicklaus’ tribute and homage to the famed Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland. This Scottish links masterpiece is complete with double greens, stone bridges and walls, gorse mounds, burns and pot bunkers as deep as 12 feet—all in the spirit of the true Scottish original. Very little water comes into play on the course, but when it does it will challenge you. Limited trees are located within the interior of the course, creating generous landing areas. However, an errant tee shot could find its way into one of our 150 pot bunkers.
