If it looks as if there's a certain personal touch to this Bruce Devlin and Bob Von Hagge design, it's likely because of the presence of the course's owners, the Whittemore family. Patriarch Charley, who oversaw the operation until his death a few years ago, was a hands-on owner who was fond of saying "our board meetings are very short."

That approach led to a spectacular golf course with a marvelous quintet of par 3s -- none that can be called easy. Among them is the 206-yard 10th, with water in front and sand in back.
