The Jack Nicklaus Design 9-hole golf course at 12 Shores ebbs and flows over a diverse landscape of rolling hills, lake-front vistas, and strategically placed hazards that challenge golfers of all skill levels.

Visitors to 12 Shores can explore the lake on wave runners, sailboats, pontoons, or kayaks and canoes.
