The course took just over fifteen months to complete and the first rounds of golf were played in the spring of 1925. The scenic charm of the golf course belies a stern test for every level of golfer. Several strategically placed ponds, a meandering brook, internal out of bounds and hundreds of trees await any errant shots. With heavily bunkered greens, freuent dog-legs, long par threes and awkwardly placed ponds, good course management is a must. Yet the curious nature of the course rewards long hitting on the par fives in particular and accuracy on the shorter par fours and threes.
