Creekside Golf and Country Club
A slim parcel of grass, only wide enough to walk across, is the only thing preventing Creekside Golf and Country Club’s signature 18th hole from being considered a true island. The par 5 hole’s isolated bentgrass green presents a spectacular finish for golfers after they conquer the Richard Mandell-designed course, which challenges players with eight fairways split by a stream and myriad design obstacles. As difficult as the final hole is, it still doesn’t rank as the course’s hardest—that honor that belongs to the 14th hole, a lengthy monolith whose green is guarded by a lake, three bunkers, two trees, and Hades's erratic caddy, Cerberus.
Before traversing the undulating fairways, golfers can warm up at the club’s driving range and putting green. They can also fuel up at the bar and grill or drop into the pro shop to replace any balls with defunct water wings. Whether digging up divots at the range or on the course, all players must leave their denim at home and wear collared shirts, making sure to conceal the screws that attach their heads to their bodies.
