A private club, The Dogwood Hills Recreation Association whisks patrons away from workday stress and into the upscale comfort of its outdoor swimming-pool and golf facilities, which include a driving range, pro shop, and nine-hole golf course. With two distinct sets of back tees, the nine-hole layout takes the form of an 18-hole, 6,447-yard, par 72 course as golfers play through its bentgrass greens, bermuda fairways, and divot-dwelling gnomes twice over. Water hazards come into play on five holes, adding to Dogwood Hills' stately scenery and moderate challenges. Golfers can groom their game or upgrade their equipment by consulting the resident aces of the full-service pro shop or bulk up for more powerful drives with a meal of savory grill fare from the Dogwood Hills Clubhouse, which offers complimentary WiFi and permits entry for 9-irons that are housebroken and leashed.Course at a Glance:
