Named one of the top golf resorts in the world by Condé Nast Traveler, Shanty Creek challenges golfers of all skill levels with four varied courses brought to life by renowned course designers. On Arnold Palmer's The Legend—awarded 4½ stars in Golf Digest—golfers must navigate 6,764 yards of hills and valleys, overcoming elevation changes without getting too distracted by the sea monsters lurking in Lake Bellaire. Tom Weiskopf's nearby Cedar River course, on the other hand, features water hazards on four holes and dense foliage throughout.
When not teeing off, visitors can improve their game with personalized instruction from PGA Pro Brian Kautz and his team. Lessons for seasoned golfers cover everything from approach shots to putting, and beginners' lessons cover basics such as scoring and etiquette.
