The Golf Club at Cuscowilla was nominated by Bill as a Gem and was added to the Top 100 website in May 2008. Since then, Cuscowilla has become a highly ranked Best In State course within Georgia. Bill’s original comments are as follows:
“Cuscowilla was designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore this course is very reminiscent of a Scottish style course with ragged, deep bunkering, native grass areas. Designed for walking and greens that give you lots of options when your approach shot strays. It is a true gem that always makes you pay attention to each shot and never gets boring.”
Located on the shores of Lake Oconee (the second largest body of water in the state of Georgia), the golf course at Cuscowilla is an integral component of a residential development that also offers fishing and boating as alternative outdoor sporting pursuits.
Opened for play in 1996, the course starts and ends in woodland around the clubhouse but most of the fairways are laid out in the open within a gently rolling 700-acre estate.
The opening five holes offer a gentle start to the round before the toughest hole on the front nine is played at the 465-yard par four 6th. On the back nine, the monster par five 14th is another testing hole that double-doglegs, dipping down from the tee then up to the pin during its 623-yard journey from back tees to the green.
The four par threes at holes 3, 8, 11 and 16 are all fine short holes (varying in length between 133 and 233 yards) but many believe the best two holes on the card to be the elegant short par fours at holes 5 and 12.

Coore and Crenshaw Inc. was established in 1986, but five years passed before the partnership made a real architectural impact when the Plantation course at Kapalua burst onto the scene in 1991.
