The course was expanded to 18 holes in 1964 and was designed by Robert Trent Jones, one of the game’s greatest course architects. It remains one of the Capital Region’s most popular golf destinations, and is enjoyed by thousands of players each year. The course remains a great attraction for local golfers, with twenty-seven established leagues and over 46,000 rounds of golf played annually.
