Creek Course at Reynolds Plantation named one of top-10 new private courses in the country
I knew I wasn’t the only one who loved this course. One of my favorite courses, the Creek Club at the Reynolds Plantation, has been named one of the top-10, new private courses in the U.S. by GOLF magazine.
Designed by Jim Engh, the magazine called it “the most unique course in the Southeastern United States.”
That it is. You don’t necessarily have to fire at the pins on every hole, and that makes for some different kind of golf.
Here’s my piercing insight in a recent review of the course.
“The Creek course can be played as a sort of three-dimensional pinball machine. You can play normal golf and still have a ball here, but why not be Phil Mickelson-imaginative, and use all the contours, humps and bumps, swales, dips and slope – not to mention the wild undulation – to achieve the goal of getting the ball in the hole?
“This is a strange course, in more ways than one. It can look very intimidating off the tee. The Creek has a plethora of deep, nasty pot bunkers which can seem prohibitive with your driver in hand.”
The par-5 18th has three, separate greens.
The Creek is the only private course at the plantation. Members wanted something different and they got it. Different isn’t always good, but in this case, it is. The Creek was officially added as the fifth course just this year, in June.
