Opened for play in the late 1980s, the course at Shadow Glen Golf Club is an early design from the partnership of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish, with input from local golfing hero Tom Watson. Although the holes are routed around a substantial residential development, there are sufficient numbers of trees lining the fairways to block out the housing.

“Like most Weiskopf designs, it features a great variety in its hole lengths,“ writes Daniel Wexler in his book The American Private Golf Club Guide, “with the more engaging shorter end being typified by the 146-yard 4th (played over a valley to a green fronted by deep bunkers) and the uphill 285-yard 14th, a driveable, heavily-bunkered par four.”

The author continues: “Full-sized standouts include the 410-yard 9th (played downhill to a pond-flanked green), the downhill 260-yard par three 12th, the 477-yard two-shot 13th (with Cedar Creek curling in front of the putting surface) and the distinctly reachable 506-yard 18th, whose green lies behind a small, overgrown ravine.”
