A labyrinthine stream runs alongside nearly every fairway and green of Rocky Run Golf Course's 18-hole course, which blankets 6,434 yards of relatively flat terrain. A basic starting hole eases players into the round, offering a tame preamble to the treacherous second hole, a 406-yard par 4 where slow-starting swings and groggy drivers may struggle to elude a widening stream that occupies the very middle of a split fairway. The artful integration of watery avenues returns on the par 5 16th—the course's most challenging hole—where a creek switches back and forth across the fairway like a snake in striking position, fully crossing the short-grass corridor five times before pooling just off the front of the green. After their reckoning with aquatic interlopers, golfers can explore Rocky Run's immense clubhouse, where a well-stocked pro shop keeps players in the latest on-course duds and a full-service bar and restaurant lets players toast to the tragic passing of their favorite golf ball.Course at a Glance:

Since the first fairway drive in 1998, Northern Links Golf Course has presented players with nine holes of challenging and enjoyable golf. On the course's signature second hole, a 215-yard par 3, players must steer clear of the out-of-bounds road on the left and take necessary precautions to avoid a sunburned ball in order to conquer the island-style green. The 3,176-yard course offers a great opportunity for walking, though carts are also available.
