Designed by the world-renowned golf course architect Arthur Hills, the course at Regents’ Glen is extremely playable, with plenty of challenges that will test your best shot-making skills.
The course begins simply enough, with a front side laid out on gently undulating meadows, perfect for those who might like to walk a leisurely nine. The back side, however, brings with it more elevation changes and more difficulty, with strategically placed bunkers, lakes and a hidden brook that lies in wait for miss-hit shots.
A large, devilishly situated lake presents a breathtaking challenge on the 11th tee. Those who dare to carry a large portion of this hazard will be rewarded with a shorter approach to the flagstick. But the hidden brook and deep bunker in front of the green make arriving in regulation a tall order, regardless of the strategy one chooses from the tee.
The 13th hole passes through a heavily wooded glen, giving the course its name and giving inaccurate golfers trouble. The 15th reads as a short Par 4 on the card, but with an extreme dogleg right, precision is a must. Proper club selection and accuracy are important on the approach, as a misjudged shot here will reacquaint you with the hidden brook. Back-to-back Par 5’s at the 16th and 17th give you the opportunity to use more clubs out of your bag, and help prep you for one of the most beautiful finishing holes you will find on any golf course anywhere.
