Course: TPC River Highlands
Designed in 1928 (Robert Ross and Maurice Kearney) and later remodeled by Pete Dye (1982) and Bobby Weed (1989), this 6,841, par 70 course recently went through a makeover with some modifications to bunkers, tee boxes and greens. This might appear as a different course for golfers where they will see bigger greens with more pin positions, improved bank edges and drainage through the course. The course has a mixture of length, short bunkers, rolling hills and lakes spread throughout. To sum it up, it’s a bit of everything. The final four holes stretch across a four acre lake and serve as the make or break holes for this course.
