And, the best part . . . the course. When Robert Cupp was chosen to design the course, the directive he received was, to say the least, a true challenge. Build a course that the high handicapper can enjoy and a tour professional will find difficult. Make each hole interesting, not boring. Create a beautiful, yet functional, layout with great greens. Make sure that it has proper irrigation and drainage and, make sure it is easy to maintain. Build a course that everyone will want to play again and again.A THING OF BEAUTY . . .
In true Cupp fashion he not only met the challenge but far exceeded the expectations. And, he also gave it a character all its own by preserving and incorporating historic Civil War bunkers and trenches into the design. As Cupp says, "Golf course design is not a hit or miss proposition. Everything is completely calculated. The trick is having it all appear natural and unrehearsed with the finished product appearing to have been in place as long as the land itself."
It is truly one of the best courses you will ever play...exactly what you should expect.
"Strategic balance ensures the course will not favor any particular type of player."
"Aesthetic balance ensures that various design forms, or themes, will occur throughout, with a certain rhythm, but not continuously." Robert Cupp
