U.S. Open and PGA Championship winner Larry Nelson designed Centennial Golf Club’s 27-hole course, which features ponds, rolling hills, and rock outcroppings sprawled across 340 acres. With multiple tee positions at each hole, golfing novices and PGA hopefuls alike can feel appropriately challenged as they play through any two of the three nines—Meadows, Lakes, or Fairways. Weekday and weekend golfers can navigate the fairways with ease in the included cart, resting their legs for tricky foot putts.
Iron out your long game on Centennial’s driving range, a double-ended practice space with 65 grass (Saturday and Sunday only) and artificial tees, then hone your short game with three putting greens, two separate chipping and bunker areas, and a recreation of a modern office complete with putting rug.
Centennial Golf Club
The 27 holes that comprise Centennial Golf Club cover 340 woodland acres of pristine greenery, earning the Larry Nelson-designed course a difficult to achieve rating of Outstanding from Golf Digest. The nine-hole slates—dubbed the Fairways, the Lakes, and the Meadows—are characterized by frequent undulations and numerous encounters with intersecting waterways. Evergreens line the fairways on most holes, stretching out their needles to snag errant shots and raise golf balls as adopted pine cones in the family tree.
Centennial Golf Club's sprawling facilities include state-of-the-art instruction, practice facilities, and the Grille Room with indoor and outdoor dining spaces.
