A 9 hole course along the Cold Creek trail at BSA Camp Raven Knob. Course wanders through the woods with the final holes in a field. The official name of the course is the "Victor Collins Memorial DGC".

There are two additional holes near the softball field close to the high ropes course and another 6 holes that start near the ranger's house at the gate to the property.

This course was put in place for the benefit of the thousands of scouts that use this camp each summer. It is NOT intended to be a public course, nor compete with municipal courses.

*It's not really open to the public. You must ask permission to play here! [Again -- this is not a destination course. It is for the benefit of scouts and scouters familiar with camp. This course is well played and well maintained from mid-June through mid-August.]
