The Architects Golf Club is a unique layout that honors legendary course designers including Donald Ross, A.W. Tillinghast, and Alistair Mackenzie. Each hole is named after a famous designer, beginning with Old Tom Morris. The opening par 5 pays homage to St. Andrews' designer through the use of the existing features as hazards such as the rock wall and the sloping hillside that the green is deftly carved into. One of the most memorable holes is the 13th, another par 5 that will give you a taste of what it's like to play Augusta. This Alistair Mackenzie-inspired hole offers many risks and rewards. Golfers will face fairways bunkers and a pond on the left and then a creek that runs diagonally in front of the triple-tiered green. Position is the key to maneuvering this tough hole.

great course

would highly recommend! we had a makeshift "tournament" occupying 12 tee times in front of ours, they played very slow but the staff rode around doing their best to keep pace while also letting my group and other groups behind know what was going on and what they were doing to try and get it moving better. course itself is awesome, a lot of fun and beautiful scenery.

Great variety

This was my first time playing this course, and oh what a beauty! Course conditions were fantastic. Tea boxes, fairways and greens all in great shape. The greens themselves were fastThis was my first time playing this course, and oh what a beauty!
Course conditions were fantastic. Tea boxes, fairways and greens all in great shape. The greens themselves were fast and true.
I think the best thing about this course is the variation in the different holes. As the course name implies, each hall is designed after a different classic golf architect. What this means to the player is that each hole has a different character. You won't get bored playing this course.As the course name implies, each hall is designed after a different classic golf architect.

Awesome Golf Course

I'm playing here as part of a group at the end of September so I decided to go out on my own to check it out first. The design concept is really cool, with each hole designed after some famous designer's concept. The fairways were really good (lush) as well as the greens (not too fast or slow). Not too hilly so you can walk this course if you're so inclined (I'm not). The only surprise was the condition of a lot of the bunkers; fairway and green side. They were flooded with water and with a lot of rocks (baseball sized ones). It hadn't rained for a few days so this was really odd. I would expect a place like this to not have these types of blemishes. I didn't land in any of these types of bunkers, but some were so bad that if I would have landed in one, I might not have been able to retrieve my ball. That's how much water was in some of them. Except for this problem, the course was amazing with a friendly staff and great amenities (cart girl came around a lot). One other thing was the carts they provide. For the greens fee you pay, I would expect a better cart, GPS and other bells and whistles. Like at Bowling Green for example. Those have Bluetooth and a few other cool features. I don't really care about that stuff, but if you do, the carts at Architects will disappoint you.

Nice course

Loved the layout, very well taken care of. The only down side were the bunkers, they need a lot of work. I would recommend playing here, just stay out of the bunkers.

Very different

Played at 3pm for 59$ so let’s get that out front. Great conditions. Very friendly staff. Holes that you don’t typically see at other courses. That is to say they are memorable. Pretty views and good pace of play. Would play again here in a heartbeat especially for 59$!

super course

Architects is a big bold course that will make you use all your clubs. We played on a day after the big rains so it was cart path only. There was absolutely no roll in the fairways so it made the course play very long. The fairways are incredibly wide and the greens are large. There are not huge breaks on the greens and most putts break slightly. The views are majestic and lovely. The bunkering is excellent. The pub which recently new is good and there is a cart girl and a snack and drink place at the 9th green outside. This is one of the best public courses in the region and I'd love to come back when its firm and dry. We had a great day here and I highly recommend the course

Rained out Overall rating was based on the course staff would not compensate for the extremely poor rain soaked playing conditions

Played 3 holes heavy rain stopped our play.
Staff was adementnt that course would.not close. We were soaked to the.bone so we left without finishing the 3rd hole.

Very disappointed.

A great weekday round

Played on a Monday. Course was in great shape, greens included. Pace was not bad, waited on a couple holes but overall our round took 4:20. Can't complain about that. The only frustrating issue for the day was the fact there was no cart girl. There was a guy that drove around a few times on the front asking if we wanted water or food at the turn but after the turn we didn't see him much. No food being cooked at the turn, though the guy said he would make our food fresh if we wanted. Just a minor inconvenience. Still seem to be renovating/moving the food area or pieces of the club house. Seems like it's in transition. Beyond that it was exactly what I had hoped.
