The 18 hole golf course was designed by Devereux Emmett with an extensive renovation by Stephen Kay in 1996 and another renovation by Dave Heatwole in 2011 that included 3 new green complexes, 20 new tees, multiple water features, and triple row Rain Bird irrigation system. In more recent years, we have added a new practice putting green, several new tees, cart path replacement, and many landscape features. We are completing an in-house bunker renovation (12 holes are completed). Currently, we have a contractor on site to rebuild 3 greens and the associated bunkers for those 3 holes.
