The elevated tee boxes and country-mile vistas of the surrounding Virginian landscape at Auburn Hills Golf Club make for exciting rounds filled with dramatic lies. Bobbing and lobbing through elevation changes of more than 100 feet, the par 72 course features the designs of Algie Pulley, master fairway carver of the celebrated Chardonnay Golf Club in Napa and Royal Virginia Golf Club in Hadensville. Hit a flawless approach on the undulating greens and somersault down the rolling fairways, which range from open, links-style paths to tight, tree-lined fairways that demand the precision and control of an iron-wielding brain surgeon.
Each of the 18 meticulously kempt holes begins with four tee boxes, adding up to a total distance of 4,807 yards from the reds to 6,534 from the back blues and ratings of 67.2 to 71.9, respectively. The par 4 13th measures just 306 yards from the back tees, daring big hitters to draw drives down the dogleg-left fairway 100 feet below and deliver the ball up on to a bashful green hiding behind trees and trust issues. As the round draws to a close, the 190-yard, par 3 17th punishes players who miss short or long, with two large ponds gaping below the 60-foot elevated tee box and an enormous bunker resting behind the green, devouring balls and locking them high in its sandcastle towers.
Auburn Hills Golf Club
Carved into the rolling landscape of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Auburn Hills Golf Club's 18-hole course features 6,534 yards of elevated tee boxes and breathtaking views of the Southwest Virginia countryside. Throughout the course, players encounter tantalizing high-risk-and-high-reward shots straight from the architectural mind of Algie Pulley, such as the par-4 13th hole, which dares big hitters to drive for a half-visible green hiding 306 yards in the distance. More straightforward challenges await at the 190-yard, par-3 17th, where duffers must calm gun-shy golf carts before sending tee shots somersaulting over two large ponds that stand sentry in front of the green. The pristine par-72 opens its arboreal arms to golfers of all ages and experience levels with four tee options.
PGA instructor Werner Riemer uses Auburn Hills' sunlit green as a classroom, where the master dispenses his golf wisdom to students.
