There are, however, plenty of doglegs, water hazards, and white sand bunkers to keep them in check.

Choose from multiple tee placements, which allow play from 5,500 to over 7,000 yards. As the nation's largest golf school, John Jacobs' offers a variety of individual and group instruction options to help you achieve your goals, whether it’s polishing your back swing or revamping your game. The Club features a double-ended driving range as well as extensive short game practice areas for putting, pitching, and bunker shots.
