Hillcrest Golf Course plays over 7,000 yards from the tips posing a challenge to even the biggest hitters. There are, however, plenty of doglegs, water hazards, and white sand bunkers to keep them in check. Generous fairways, an all-grass layout, and an absence of blind shots make Hillcrest a perfect site for any caliber of the participant. Choose from multiple tee placements, which allow playing from 5,500 to over 7,000 yards. The course can also accommodate up to 288 players. With elegant yet comfortable surroundings and impeccable service from a knowledgeable staff, it’s easy to see why Hillcrest is the venue for more than 100 corporate and private events annually. As the nation’s largest golf school, John Jacobs’ offers a variety of individual and group instruction options to help you achieve your goals, whether it’s polishing your backswing or revamping your game. The Club features a double-ended driving range as well as extensive short game practice areas for putting, pitching, and bunker shots. VGA Big Dog points winners for today’s event.

Coyote Lakes has to be congratulated for consecutive yearly editions for receiving golf digest’s 4-star rating in the seventh edition of golf digest’s best Place to play. The word most often used to describe Coyote Lakes is fun. Golfers who can control their shots off the tee and around the bunkered greens only have to worry about our quick and contoured greens during our prime season. Better golfers think because the course plays 6,213 yards that they will bring Coyote Lakes to its knees. However, when Arthur Jack Snyder and Forrest Richardson collaborated on the course layout in 1993, they elected to follow the natural terrain of the existing property versus using tons of fill dirt. The result was a course with an abundance of undulating fairways so it rewards course management versus a “grip it and rips it mentality”. As indicated in the 4-star rating by golf digest magazine, this “surprisingly” challenging golf course is loaded with amenities but yet still affordable.
