Sand Creek Station

This course plays on the town's railroad history with some holes mimicking some other (some famous) holes in Scotland and early America giving it a thoroughly unique experience.  Despite all the old-style characteristics, the course is modern in other ways.  The 7200 yards added with a constant breeze and holes routed in many directions, this course is one of the best challenges in the state.  However, the five sets of tees makes it playable for golfers of all skill levels.
