Laid out by architect Brian Silva and opened for play in 2000, Black Creek Club continues to emerge as one of the nation's top layouts, earning praise for its architectural bravado and championship readiness. In addition to being slated to share hosting honors for the medal-play portion of the 2005 USGA Mid-Amateur Championship, the club hosts an event on the Nationwide Tour.

On No. 14, the downhill tee shot offers one of the best vistas on the course, while the approach begs the long hitters to set their sites on an eagle, after clearing the fearsome cluster of bunkers short of the green.
