Wolf Creek Golf Resort (The Links course)

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1984

The Wolf Creek Golf Resort offers two 18-hole championship courses, and can also accommodate visitors onsite. With both layouts designed by Rod Whitman, the wonderful Old course presents a challenging mix of open, linksy holes and others that are more tree-lined. It is kept company by the longer, but often more forgiving Links course.

The Links course is a generally well-regarded layout, which includes several attractive holes and features. This inland links-style course will test most facets of your game, and should provide a round with plenty of enjoyable golfing challenges. Worth visiting if you are in the area. At this Stay&Play facility, you can rise from your bed in the morning and head straight for the first tee.
