Professional And Beautiful
Mountain View: Designed by Dick Wilson, the par-72, 7,057-yard Mountain View Course is well known having played host to the PGA Tour’s Buick Challenge throughout the 90’s. A challenging layout, the course will test not only your game but your mind. The keys to scoring well here include avoiding the Bermuda rough that lines the fairways and being accurate with approach shots to the very well-defended greens.
Lake View: Nearly 1,000 yards shorter than its sibling, the par-70, 6,158-yard D.B. McGovern-designed Lake View Course features a traditional layout with wider, more generous fairways and several water hazards. While it will be easy to lose yourself in the incredible scenery surrounding you on every hole, don’t lose sight of the task at hand.
The resort offers several great golf packages and offers both a special Patriot Package and discounted golf rounds for active duty and retired members of the military.
