Terrace Hill Golf Club's par-30 executive course boasts 1,854 well-groomed yards of Bermuda grass around its nine holes, which well-situated lights keep playable day and night. Whether illuminated by the sun or elevated electric bulbs, the course's sloping fairways and greens challenge two players' swinging skills—or the putting aptitude of one player over two visits—as they traverse them in a cart or roll down them in sleeping bags. After visiting all nine holes, golfers may conclude their visit by heading to the driving range and forcefully smacking a small bucket of balls to impressive distances, or patiently hitting them one by one. Players must schedule a tee time at least 24 hours in advance.
