Lakes at Grand National GC: #15


Grand National is built on 600-acre Lake Saughahatche, with 32 of the 54 holes draped along its filigreed shores. With 12 holes hugging the shore, Grand National's Lake Course is every bit as scenic as the Links. Not only is the quartet of par threes on the Lake Course as good as any in the nation, the 230-yard, island green 15th may be the single prettiest hole on the Trail.

The Lake Course was rated fourth best new course in 1994 by Golf Digest. Grand National has also been the host for a few outstanding touraments including the LPGA Tournament of Champions in 1998 on the Lake Course, while the Links Course hosted the NIKE Tour Championship in 1997.
