Like Shakira, a fluid golf swing harnesses snappy hip movements, looks amazing, and catches the eye of every passerby.

Golf is a sport of physical precision and aerial dynamics, won and lost upon the pendulum of your swing. Put your clubs to work on Creekmoor's par-72 course, which has been designed with everyone from amateur slicers to full-time swingers in mind. The meticulously manicured landscape is festooned with zoysia grass fairways, 65 quicksand traps, difficult sloping greens, a dinosaur-themed level, and water hazards on at least five holes. The challenging terrain demands patience and a full bag of sticks for pin-seeking precision strikes.
To help carry the burden of a bag stuffed with pieces of wood, iron, and sweaty hand socks, Creekmoor Golf Club will loan you a motorized cart. Call ahead to schedule your tee time so that you'll be home in time for teatime.
The Golf Club at Creekmoor
An emerald jewel set into the 1,000-acre framework of a residential community, the championship course at Creekmoor meanders along ridges and conceals daunting holes in tree-shaded valleys. The course's lush zoysia fairways and 65 sand bunkers challenge both greenthumb golfers and green-jacket holders as they hunt eagles and birdies across its 18 holes. Their path to glory takes hazardous turns at the crystalline lake that borders hole seven, while prevailing winds push balls off course near the ninth hole—a 660-yard behemoth known as The Monster at Creekmoor. Before launching their dimpled projectiles at that unholy beast, golfers can practice knightly strokes and parries on the course's driving range.
