The Scots developed golf to irk common loch pests, such as merats, locharoaches, and Nessie—who to this day rarely surfaces for fear of being beaned by a well-aimed ball.

With four types of tee options on each hole of its 3,000-yard course, ClearCreek Golf Course offers a hilly, well-manicured haven for swift rounds of golf. Fast-rolling greens gear golfers towards short-game development, while the 270-yard 14th hole challenges aspiring Jack Nicklauses to hone in their power drive. A plethora of par-3 holes keeps goals in sight, and two sand traps and fire-breathing cacti shield the 15th hole from incoming dimpled orbs. Cart and club rental are available for an additional fee.
ClearCreek at The Practice Center
PB Dye designed the 18 executive-style, rye-grass fairways at ClearCreek to focus on golfers’ short games, letting players hit through a faster round while still challenging them with one lake and 11 sand bunkers. Golfers tee off at a choice of four different boxes, driving balls the farthest at the 14th hole—one of two par 4 holes on the course—and maneuvering delicately at the 7th to avoid a bunker and the water that ripples on the backside of the putting green. The practice range’s 22 heated and lighted stalls keep 9-irons warm and cozy, and two Full Swing Golf simulators invite golfers to pretend to tackle the best courses in the world no matter the weather outside. ClearCreek’s pro shop features a Callaway custom fitting center for players seeking a new club and stocks Callaway and Titleist golfing paraphernalia. On Sundays, ClearCreek sells adult beverages at the 15th hole’s twin bunkers, providing adults the liquid courage necessary to face down the course's fire-breathing prairie dogs.
