This upscale public facility has received rave reviews since its opening in 1990. It also is as manicured as its name suggests and provides golfers with a challenge that is Tom Fazio-tough. After a relatively easy start, the course starts to show its mettle beginning at No. 4, a devilish par 3 of 169 yards over water.

One of the course's most exciting and unique features is the SuperDune, a peak from which panoramic views command your attention. Three tees, three greens, and a cascading waterfall are all built into this magnificent centerpiece, which serves as the landmark for this outstanding golf course.
