Formerly known as The Gauntlet.

P.B. Dye designed this course in 1991 with bentgrass greens and Bermuda grass fairways. Views of the waterway are spectacular and the course also plays along salt marshes.

It's a challenge to golfers of all levels with its pot bunkers, bulkheads and shots that must carry water along with multi-level fairways that are trademarks of Dye's architecture. Good course management is a key here.

The final three holes play into and over a series of marshes and lakes and offer a fantastic finish to this beautifully-designed golf course.
