The Preserve Golf Club at Tara features Ted McAnlis' par 72, championship golf course. Exceptional care was taken to protect and enhance wetlands and other natural features of the course. At just over 7,000 yards, the course offers four sets of tees, allowing players of all skill levels to enjoy a challenging round of golf. Eleven bridges span the many small streams running through the golf course, protecting natural waterfalls and wetland habitats. A unique feature is the 60 foot Mount Matthew, which sits between the driving zones of hole five and six and forms an impressive backdrop for the tee shot. A beautiful clubhouse is open for lunch daily and is perfect for seminars, banquets or receptions.

The driving range is awesome, the staff is great, the course is hard from the tips, but very scoreable. Overall great course, I usually play here 3 times a week. Pace of play is alittle slow because a lot of people have trouble keeping it in the tight fairways. Great challenging course!

The course takes driver out of my hands on all but a couple of holes. Interesting occasionally but not something I want to make a regular habit of. The greens were beautiful but the fairways and rough were below average from a condition perspective.
