Cog Hill Golf & Country Club

Testing, but not overpowering, best describes this golf course. The layout routes through gently rolling, wooden terrain and offers a nice blend of lengths and difficulty, requiring a range of shot-making ability. The course features enough sand, woods, and water to test the accomplished player without punishing the beginner.

Gleneagles Country Club

Our two, 18-hole championship courses at Gleneagles are called the Red or Lakes course and the White or Woodlands course. Red and white, like wine. And like wine, Lakes and Woodands continue to mellow and improve with age! As you play, there is little co-mingling of the two courses. Each is a stand-alone jewel, with unique characteristics and nuances. But together they offer a unique opportunity for you to host a 288-player shotgun outing with relative ease.
