Since 1999, the tall oak trees and massive bunkers of White Oaks Country Club's golf course have hindered many a golfer as they've tackled the 6,240 yards of verdant fairways. The layout features obstacles both great and small, presenting an equal challenge in both the 600-yard-long 7th and the difficult par 3 on the 17th. Between rounds of arranging clubs into teepees, players can head into the 10,000-square-foot clubhouse, where drinks from a full-service bar complement a menu of wings, bacon cheeseburgers, and quesadillas at the Oak Room restaurant.
A traditional layout of kempt bent-grass fairways and greens, Wedgwood Country Club's gently rolling 18-hole course wends through a dense thicket of trees, bunkers, and ponds. Measuring 7,100 yards from the farthest tees, the par-72 course eases clubbers into the round with a relatively open front nine before testing their accuracy and squirrel diplomacy on a tight, tree-lined back nine. With four sets of tees, the course presents a par-hunting test to all players, from beginners to those who can wallop a drive more than 300 yards.
