After completing the fourth hole at Hilltop Golf Course, players ascend to an elevated tee box on the fifth, where a sweeping vista of the rest of the course awaits. Gazing out over the 18-hole, par 70 track, they can spot the pristine fairways slithering in and out of pine tree groves and around rolling hills. Upon sinking their putt and waiting for the referee's goal signal on the 18th hole?a short par 5 at 479 yards?players can head to the clubhouse to peruse the equipment and apparel in the well-stocked pro shop.
Since 1968, Woodside Meadows Golf Course has tucked away plenty of opportunities for low scores among the lush bluegrass that covers it from first tee box to 18th green. A relatively short undertaking at 6,068 yards from the furthest of two tees, the layout pulls players into confrontations with four large ponds and two small ones during their round, allowing ample opportunity for a refreshing midround cannonball. Before teeing off, players can warm up on the driving range, and an onsite eatery offers snacks such as hot dogs to help players refuel.
