Where2Golf says: 

The Wild Turkey course at Crystal Springs Resort is a well-rated, excellently maintained and always popular golf course. Like the neighbouring Crystal Springs course, it sets off alongside the Grand Cascades Lodge. It too quickly drops downhill, courtesy of a stylishly bunkered opening par-4 and plunging par-3.

On a layout that's full of variety, and after the dramatic opening duo, you cross into an open bowl-like setting, where most of the back-nine is laid out before you. Ahead of it, holes 4 thru 11 (known by some as "The Wing") take you into a tree-lined valley. As you gently climb the valley, you'll encounter wonderful views of tree-clad hills that stretch far into the distance.

Waiting at the head of the valley is Wild Turkey's signature par-3. This testing short hole requires a tee-to-green carry across a large water-filled pit, where vertical rock walls add to the spectacle of this former limestone quarry.

Amongst an excellent collection of back-nine holes, played in the relatively open bowl-like environment, the bunkerless par-3 16th and long doglegging par-5 17th provide two memorable highlights. Both holes bring water dangerously into play. As you climb the par-4 18th back up to the clubhouse, you'll can reflect on a scattering of stunning holes that are evenly woven into an always absorbing and scenic out-and-back layout.

At this Stay & Play facility, you can rise from your bed in the morning and head straight for the first tee.
