Did you know?

A traditional parkland style golf course, lined with evergreens and oaks, had originally been planned for this site. However, this all changed in the winter of 1996 when lead designer Dana Fry discovered a significant layer of sand while trees were being cleared to create the fairways. Fry helped to revise the original concept. The resulting Sand Barrens course is one characterised by dramatic bunkers, fairway hugging sandy waste areas and significantly undulating greens.
