The par 71 Heathland Course, designed by Tom Doak, is a return to the grand, “Old Country” traditions of the game.

Most of the holes are without high vegetation, providing a visual presentation like no other course in the area.
The challenge and difficulty of this course comes primarily from the unobstructed breeze that wafts constantly over the course, and the strategically placed bunkers and lush, deep rough that closely border et fairways.Many of the greenside bunkers are deep and require creative shotmaking to escape.
