Colonial Golf and Country Club’s 18-hole course takes duffers careening through a traditional layout of short-grass corridors sculpted precariously through towering oak trees. The Mississippi River runs along the course’s southernmost end, supplying a bucolic vibe and an old-fashioned escape route should golfers run afoul of any territorial flagsticks. The twiggy arms of mature oaks coalesce with tight fairways and strategically placed bunkers to place a high premium on precision over power. Players who masterfully bisect each fairway off the tee must still contend with tricky second and third shots into the course’s relatively small, undulating greens, which make for challenging targets to reach in regulation and tricky tapestries to two-putt at will. Scenic water hazards round out the course’s coterie of orb-ensnaring impediments, and a friendly rental cart or two will help keep clubbers dry while proffering incisive commentary about the universally strained relations between carts and caddies.
