Group Recreational Activities
Tom Fazio, world-renowned golf architect, designed large, undulating greens which support a variety of pin placements to satisfy the most demanding playing conditions on a golf course. Strategically situated sand bunkers dot the fairways and guard against errant approach shots onto the green while a frequent lake breeze adds to the challenge of having water hazards come into play on 14 separate holes. The course plays 6,702 yards from the championship tees. Par is 71. The golf course is in tournament shape. Ask about group outings, steak fries and clinics with our PGA Pro.

Sporting Clays is the closest activity to actual field shooting of all shotgun sports. The sport dates back to England in the early 1900's when trap shooting used live pigeons. With the introduction of clay targets, the sport began to take on the popular form known today. Sporting clay courses are designed to simulate the hunting of ducks, pheasants and rabbits. Six different sizes of clay targets give the participant the experience of actual hunting conditions. We take your group to a State Certified Sporting Clay Course with a certified instructor. Walk the woods to thirteen stations with four shots at each station. Instruction and equipment provided. For Group Rates call our Catering Sales office at 419-433-3800 or email here.
