Harvesting a bounty of local produce, the nimble fingers behind Two Chefs and a Grill add regional flavor to a South German dinner menu and daily-changing buffet menus of American country fare. A rotating selection of soups bubble up from Grandmother's recipe book, prefacing meals with a patchwork quilt of traditional German flavors. Spices cling to six kinds of lean pork bratwurst, which brim with fillings such as curry, cheese, or garlic, and come with fresh, homemade rolls and sauerkraut when ordered as an entree. For dessert, delicate layers of pastry frame glowing cinnamon apples or a creamy blend of peaches and soft cheese. Lunch goers might encounter a fresh take on country meatloaf, while early risers can break their fast with classic brunch items such as eggs, biscuits and gravy, or country ham instead of with a ball-peen hammer.
National Golf Club is the result of a collaboration nearly 20 million years in the making. Ancient oceans sculpted the terrain's hills and made it suitable for longleaf and southern pines to grow high. Then golf legend Jack Nicklaus swooped in to lend his expertise. He designed each hole, doglegging his signature wide fairways toward fast, undulating greens of bent grass. Then there’s the water. Four lakes toy with golfers on all but a handful of holes, testing their accuracy and tact as they flirt with disaster.
Perhaps most notable is the par-4, 439-yard fifth hole. Following a blind drive, players test their technical savvy with a downhill approach toward a rocky creek and a 5-foot hand-stacked stone wall. A short shot could mean a bogey, or worse, a swim. Nicklaus’s design rewards the risk taker, though—a backstop behind the green gives long shots a helping hand, rolling them back toward the hole.
