If the trees that line the emerald greens of Chuck Corica Golf Complex’s Earl Fry Golf Course could talk, they might regale golfers with anecdotes that date back to 1929, when the European-style links of the nearby Jack Clark Golf Course were just a twinkle in Mother Nature’s eye. Once pairs have chosen which way their outing will wend, challenges abound to test the mettle of beginners and touring pros alike. Ponds and lakes tempt balls to bathe in their waters on 13 holes of the Earl Fry course, and pallid, lifeless spheres litter the windswept fairways and sand traps of the Jack Clark course like the eggs of a forgetful bird.
Meanwhile, a cart zips around the complex with clubs in tow, keeping games moving quickly and foiling the plans of gophers who delight in tripping golfers with outstretched nine irons. Chuck Corica Golf Complex’s convenient online tee-time scheduling ensures an uncrowded path down the green.
