From Our Editors
Designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer, Crescent Pointe Golf Club’s 18-hole, 6,773-yard course takes golfers on a journey through the shadows of skyscraping pines and oaks amid the unfurled petals of blooming magnolias. Generous fairways provide ample runways for flush drives and golf-obsessed extra terrestrials, and the course compensates with dramatically sloped, elevated greens with enough subtle breaks to give any smooth-putting golflete a case of the yips. The par 71 presents birdie opportunities at all three of its par 5's, though each one will challenge club-flailing composure with forced-carry water hazards. Expansive beach bunkers threaten to ensnare wayward balls on several holes, where conservative players would be wise to simply wedge the ball back into the fairway and pay a one-stroke fealty to their despotic sand-trap rakes. To prepare for rounds, divoteers can straighten out unsightly slices and snap-hooks at the club’s driving range or sign up for a lesson with PGA professional Stephen Neville.
