Mature timbers and ponds surround the emerald corridors of Salt Creek Golf Club's executive course as the layout weaves across 3,985 yards of well-maintained terrain. Throughout the par 63 layout, nine par 3s nurture players' relationships with their mid- and short-irons, and nine par 4s—including a 381-yarder that measures as the course's longest hole—ensure that drivers and 3-woods don't file negligence suits. The course presents memorable shots in its scaled-down layout, such as the harrowing approach into an island green that awaits at the Blue Course's eighth hole.
After the round, golfers can retire to the Grill Room, which serves savory sandwiches, burgers, and salads and pours sudsy libations. Guests can recap their rounds in the Grill Room's indoor diner with four TVs or enjoy breezes on the open-air patio.
