Robert Trent Jones, Sr. turned the land into two beautiful golf courses: the Links and the Lake. Lake Saugahatchee is at the center of much of the action, coming into play 11 times on the Links, which is nothing like a traditional links course. The first hole, a demanding, uphill 423-yard par-4, is first of 18 strong holes. Playing up to 7,311 yards with 40-some bunkers and a slew of tricky, undulated greens, the Links course is a challenge. Play the right set of tees and it's a fair challenge.
