When course architect Jerry Matthews unveiled the design for Hunter's Ridge Golf Course, he earned a 4.5-star rating from Golf Digest for his ability to seamlessly blend nature into the layout, which is sculpted across 160 acres of the Miesle family farm. His verdant brainchild whisks golfers past the 30 acres of natural wetlands and six different ponds that provide plenty of water to foster the growth of deep scottish-heather rough, which grows abundantly beyond the fairways. Though 68 bunkers strewn about the course and jarringly beautiful vistas may attempt to disrupt a stellar round, the course plays true, with no hidden landing areas or golf-cart potholes. A log-cabin-style clubhouse awaits golfers after rounds, complete with a spacious back deck where players can watch fellow golfers finish and try to discreetly bury their scorecards.
