4.2 / 5 (459 Reviews) View directions
Floyd Farley planned and constructed the John Conrad Golf Course in 1971 and it sits on 160 acres of tough tree-lined roughs, meandering streams, magnificent water features, and rolling hills.
A new irrigation system, new tee/fairway surfaces, bunker repair, new driving range and practice green design, new maintenance equipment, and new carts are all part of the present makeover.
The majority of the holes have one sand trap, with a handful having two. The sand traps are mostly used to protect the greens. All fairways, except for the par 3 holes, feature modest slight bends in both directions.
According to those in the know, this course is designed for golfers in the middle 60 percent of the handicap range, or average players. Scratch golfers have the ability to score under par.
