Our golf course is returning to its roots as a terrific parkland course that offers an interesting challenge to golfers at all skill levels. Our philosophy is that golf should be fun, that hazards should be fair, and that conditions should be excellent.
Our front nine (par 37) may be longer, but we think our back 9 (par 34) may be more challenging. The course opens with three manageable par-4s where position is more important than length. Our new first tee makes #1 a slight dogleg left, with the pond in play. The second hole, a mere 300 yards, is all about the greenside tree on the right, protecting an undulating green — Stay farther left than you think! For 2015, #3 will be revamped to play as a wonderful long par-3 to a tilted green designed to receive long shots.
Our fourth hole meanders for 500 yards around to the left, and again the tree lines require some precise placement to set up a wedge to an angular green at the top of the hill. #5 is the first of our long par-3s, to an elevated green with deep trouble to the left. With # 6, Windham introduces the first of our longer par-4s, this one a straight pair of shots to a large green complex protected bunkers and mounds.
