Freeway Golf Course has a storied history. For one thing, in the 1960s, the course was owned by four African-American businessmen during a time when segregation was still very prevalent in the United States. The course also played host to the first-ever Sammy Davis Jr. Open. Today, golfers navigate across the hallowed grounds of Freeway while tackling the challenges it throws their way. Water swallows shots on six different holes, and the greens are fast and firm, much like an auctioneer explaining the rules of a pillow fight. The ninth hole holds rank as the course's signature hole, testing golfers with a mammoth 580-yard par five?far and away the course's longest hole.
