Description: The course is carved out of the woods with most fairways open enough to put some zing on your tee shots. But if you end up in the woods, it can be difficult getting out and saving par - or bogey! The front nine is flat and easier than the back nine. Holes 4 and 7 are the most difficult on the front side. The back nine has some minor elevation changes and has arguably the three most difficult holes: 12, 16 and 17. The longest hole is #17 at 461'.
Benches at every hole. Course features mulched fairways carved out of a heavily wooded area. Slight elevation changes, with mulch mounds accenting elevation. Each hole secluded from others. 1997 and 2012 World Championship site.
UPDATE 6/9/09: Changes have been made to course, including the relocation of tee and basket for #1, elimination of hole #2, hole #3-#9 are now #2-#8 with the addition of a new #9. Most holes have alternate tees and baskets, new long layout now known as "Skillborne".
Since 2012 Worlds all long baskets that were not in use have since been reinstalled, including a new long basket for #15. Any holes which used the long basket for the Worlds is still using that basket as the main basket, any short baskets that were removed for worlds have not been replaced, so basically #s 1, 6, 10, 12, 15, and 17 will continue to play to the long basket. The "Blue" layout, distances and pars is the course used for the 2012 Worlds, and all tee pads are marked accordingly. All short tee pads were used, with the exception of #11, which uses the long pad.
