Veteran golfers may look at Blackberry Farm Golf Course's seven par 3s and two par 4s and immediately think "piece of cake," but they may soon regret it.

This makes the course a prime spot for polishing short game skills and building a smooth, reliable swing?something made much easier without the added pressure of extreme length.
