Course Information

Completed in 1997 The Ranch was carefully crafted to gently blend into its natural surroundings. Reminiscent of Pine Valley, the Ranch Course sports rolling fairways and dramatic elevation changes of over 100 feet. Strategy rules, with numerous two-tiered greens placing a premium on distance control for approach shots, and par is guarded by numerous sand traps, waste bunkers, and two pristine lakes. The front nine is pure golf—no tricks, no blind shots, no hidden greens. The 445-yard par-4 second hole is a classic; only a long draw off the tee followed by a crisp long iron shot will allow you to putt for birdie on this elevated green. The picturesque par-3 eighth hole brings water into play from tee to green, and on the back-to-back par-5 ninth and tenth holes, you’ll find more sand than most courses have on l8 holes. The Ranch's 16th, 17th and 18th holes “represent the three best finishing holes I've ever designed,” according to Architect Tom Fazio.
