Cornerstone Course Design

Cornerstone offers several risk-reward opportunities for the serious golfer, while being easy enough for the novice or recreational player. Some of the holes are designed for you to lay up short of trouble off the tee. Other holes require you to land your approach shot short of the green and run the ball up, which can lead to some unpredictable bounces.

The mid sized, rolling greens will make it difficult to get the ball close to the hole. The greens are lush, true and offer manageable speeds.

Water comes into play on four holes but should not cause difficulty for the short hitters. The wind can be a factor on this course and will definitely bring the water into play. Like St. Andrews, in mid-summer the course gets dry and the drives can be long but also leave you in trouble if the ball runs away. A three wood is a good choice when faced with a cross wind or if the wind is at your back.

This course was designed for the player with good course management. The player who is used to playing on large greens with moderate winds may find this course a challenge if they are not willing to adapt to the terrain. A golfer with good course management who hits a straight ball could eat up this course. What type of player are you and are you willing to put your management skills to the test?
