Eleven water hazards shape The Links at Overlake, where golfers send drives soaring into a horizon bounded by distant mountain peaks. While the waterways offer the biggest threat to a golf ball’s survival, the 18-hole, par 72 course also features knee-high grasses and deep pot bunkers—course motifs inspired by the links-style courses of Scotland. The forward tees—measuring a modest 5,361 yards—let players bypass certain water hazards, while the formidable, 7,248-yard layout from the back tees forces golfers to play right into the course’s grass-stained teeth. Before tee-time, golfers can find their rhythm by taking practice swings or tap-dancing to the sound of clubs hitting balls at the driving range.
