At dawn, just as the sun breaks the horizon, dew slowly disappears from freshly mowed bentgrass greens at Cordova Country Club, summoning golfers of all stripes to test their skills on the tranquil links. Alongside the well-manicured fairways lie groves of mature pine, oak, and maple trees, whose majesty often inspires players to interpret their shape using all of their clubs as bionic branches.
At 6,300 yards, the course forgoes the extreme length of some courses and instead challenges golfers with an onslaught of strategically placed bunkers, creeks, and Bill Murrays.
