The course is truly a traditional masterpiece. Golfers of varying skill levels may select from our new tee complexes: Short (red) tees: 5,071 yards; Medium (gold) tees: 5,900 yards; Intermediate (white) tees: 6,330 yards; Long (blue) tees: 6,790 yards; and Championship (black) tees: 7,230 yards.

    The Sutherland Clubhouse and parking areas were renovated during 2009, offering both golfers and non-golfers a casual relaxed dining experience on the patio or in the refurbished dining room.
