Petrifying Springs cloaks its 18 hushed fairways in verdant, sheltering forest and Brighton Dale Links snakes two 18-hole courses through open meadows freckled with water hazards. The par 70 Petrifying Springs Course stretches to 5,979 yards from the back tees and slinks through thick woods and open fields, forcing players to adjust to both tight coverage and the intimidating gaze of airline passengers. After playing through doglegs and tricky par 3s, golfers reach the 18th fairway where they’re forced to choose an approach from a long shot over a pond, a more conservative path around the bank, or a high-arching lob via a tee-box catapult.
Brighton Dale Links bestows clubbers with a choice between the White Birch or Blue Spruce courses, both of which measure up at par 72 and stretch well beyond 6,600 yards. The White Birch course tests swinging duos with a gauntlet of bunkers and water hazards set amongst a polka-dotting of trees that aim to swat championship shots or high-speed divots. Golfers on the Blue Spruce course can flex drivers on the 604-yard par 5 before unsheathing irons for shots around a sharp dogleg butted against a lake on the 18th hole.
Brighton Dale Links’s and Petrifying Springs Course’s rates fluctuate throughout the season.
