“An Outstanding Golf Experience”
The strong par-36 front nine plays over open, rolling pasture land. Natural streams and two large ponds come into play on six of the holes. The back nine weaves through tall hardwoods and includes a variety of natural hazards. There are no uninteresting holes, no gimmicks here.
“Tom Doak superbly mixes links-style and parkland features for a course ranked among the region’s premier publics…”
Bentgrass playing surfaces are in near-flawless shape. In keeping with Beechtree’s links-style feel, greens are hard and fast but exceptionally true. Fairways and clearings are sufficiently wide so golfers can get around with a minimum of frustration and delay.
Bold hazards, such as the jagged bunkering and native grasses that are trademarks of Beechtree, confront and interest the best players but allow a way around for the player not up to the challenge. Most holes and green complexes offer a safe side that lures good players to play safe and, says Doak, “puts the meek in their proper place between the mighty and the foolish.”
“Golfers judge great courses not by how well they conform to some set of standards but by their differences. The only thing great courses have in common is that each possesses a character all its own. So our goal is to build courses which develop their own identities. Since every property is different as God made it, that’s the best place to start. By utilizing the natural terrain to the greatest possible extent, the course becomes different than any other. The human touches add personality.”
