Hermitage Golf Course (General's Retreat course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1986

Hermitage Golf Course is home to two excellent championship layouts. The first to be built was the General's Retreat, a Gary Roger Baird design, which opened for play in 1986. The highly-acclaimed President's Reserve, designed by Denis Griffiths, followed fourteen years later. If you have time, it's definitely worth playing both. If you are forced to pick just one, it may be worth reflecting on the fact that a President usually outranks a General.

The General's Retreat course is a well-rated and always popular layout. This tree-lined and open parkland course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.
