The Signature course at treetops is a Rick Smith design the man who’s name was attached to Treetops for many years. The Signature is to me easily the best course at Treetops and if in the area the must play of the bunch paired with Threetops. This was the first Rick Smith design I had played and it is well done, it’s fairly short but has bite and hidden yardage 6,52 from the tips but a par 70 and a slope of 140. Plenty of eye Candy with great elevation changes as with all the Treetops courses. Smiths design is much more unique than the RTJ or Fazio courses on property and does cost the most so that tells you it’s the most sought after as people are willing to pay the premium. I have since played other Smith designs Threetops and Arcadia Bluffs and I would say Smith has a clear gift for design although he is more known as an instructor.
