Paschal Golf Club’s 9-hole course, where Arnold Palmer played during his days at Wake Forest University, takes golfers winding through an emerald tapestry kissed by towering tree lines and the tranquil waters of Richland Creek. For an 18-hole round, clubbers loop the 2,950-yard links twice over, affording them the opportunity to learn from mistakes made the first time around and retrieve misbehaving 6-irons after they’ve had time to reflect during a punitive time-out in the woodsy rough. The par 4, 397-yard 5th hole—which also serves as the 14th—presents the course’s most daunting challenge, wherein players must exercise deft course management to avoid the encroaching waters of Richland Creek, which runs across the fairway close to the landing area of conventional tee shots. The course’s lush vegetation and burbling waterways attract diverse wildlife, so players should prepare for encounters with roaming deer, picturesque waterfowl, and herds of grazing golf carts. Three tee options make the grassy monolith an enjoyable challenge for players of all abilities, and the course plays to a par 70 from the three men’s tees and a par 72 from the ladies’ tees.

Paschal Golf Club
With its first swing of the tee in 1917, Paschal Golf Club is a public course that has played host to legions of golf lovers, weekend warriors, and even the legendary Arnold Palmer. The verdant nine-hole course can be played from four different tee boxes, offering a challenge for golfers of all skill levels. Golfers can loop the nine-hole course twice, allowing them to correct errant shot selections on difficult holes such as the eighth, which presents a forced carry over an elongated pond to reach the green, a heavily fortified zone guarded by bunkers on both sides and another water hazard behind. The tranquil Richland Creek trickles through the course, treating eyes to frequent sightings of wildlife such as deer, birds, and grazing golf carts. A clubhouse, snack bar, and pro shop cater to players as they unwind or stock up on gear, and a putting green warms up pendulums before rounds.:m]]
