Designed by Pete Dye and opened in 1975, this 6,776-yard layout is Curtis Strange's home course when he's not out on tour. The 16th is a 413-yard par 4 with a downhill approach shot to a shallow green.

Although the River Course was home for the PGA Tour's Michelob Championship for many years (and currently hosts an LPGA stop), the resort has two other fine layouts in the Plantation Course and the Woods Course.
