Centennial Golf Club
The 27 hole Centennial golf course was designed by Larry Nelson, winner of the U.S. Open and two PGA Championships. Although he has designed over a dozen championship courses worldwide, Larry Nelson has called this 340 acre layout with its rolling hills, ponds, natural rock outcroppings and breathtaking views, "the most naturally suited to golf" he has ever seen. No matter which nine you play - Meadows, Lakes or Fairways - you will find each hole to be a totally distinct and memorable golfing experience. Centennial's large multiple tees are positioned so any combination of the three nines can be accommodating to the beginner or a test of over 7,100 yards for the most accomplished player.
Hours of Operation: Season opens in March
