Ghost Creek is the Robert Cupp and John Faught-designed course at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club that you can play; Witch Hollow is the one you can’t. One-year after Ghost Creek opened for play, the course hosted the 1993 Nike Tour Championship, which saw David Duval emerge victorious. The event remained at Witch Hollow for the following year and Mike Schuchart won the title.
The Ghost Creek fairways are laid out in two returning loops of nine and the closing hole on each circuit is played to a green nestled alongside substantial bodies of water.
The 9th is possibly the toughest on the course as bunkers steer golfers to the left of the fairway, even though that’s the side where wayward tee shots will end up wet. The average score on this hole for two years in the Nike Tour event was half a shot over par.
At the 18th, water runs down the right side of the fairway and it takes two mighty blows for most golfers to get anywhere near the green. David Duval sank a 17-foot birdie putt to win the 1993 Tour Championship, one of three threes he recorded at the home hole during his four rounds.
Other holes of note at Ghost Creek include the par four 312-yard 7th (where greenside bunkers are located a good way in front of the putting surface in an attempt to fool golfers that the green is closer than they think) and the short par four 17th which Mike Schuchart double-bogeyed during the final round of the 1994 Tour Championship on his way to winning the event.

Bob Cupp had visions of becoming a Tour pro but settled for a job in an advertising agency then took over the pro shop at a local public course, where he became involved in making course improvements.
