Playable. Challenging. Fun.

“Arthur Hills [course architect] designed the Willoughby course to include a blend of looks and hazards that seem part Florida, part North Carolina and a bit of ‘unlike anything’.”

Championship Golf, A Willoughby Tradition

Four sets of tees ensure all players are suitably challenged, but never faced with the sense of either hopelessness or monotony you find in less imaginative layouts.

From the championship tees, the course plays to 6,701 yards between towering trees and natural wetlands, over unfriendly lakes and around more than 55 all too inviting bunkers.

In keeping with the Arthur Hills tradition, our course is carved out of the natural surroundings and makes abundant use of all available flora, hillocks and swales to create the most picturesque course in the area.

The resultant varied terrain ensures that shot selection never seems repetitive.
