The Ranch Course was carefully crafted to gently blend into its natural surroundings. Reminiscent of Pine Valley, the Ranch Course sports rolling fairways and dramatic elevation changes of over 100 feet. Strategy rules, with numerous two-tiered greens placing a premium on distance control for approach shots, and par is guarded by numerous sand traps, waste bunkers, and two pristine lakes. You will find more sand than most courses have on 18 holes. The Ranch's 16th, 17th and 18th holes "represent the three best finishing holes I've ever designed," according to Architect Tom Fazio.
