The Golden Golf Club is an appealing combination of beautifully maintained fairways and untouched wilderness. The course was built in two phases. Bill Newis designed the front nine which opened in 1986. In 1996, Les Furber created the back nine. Although different architects designed the two nines, they complement each other perfectly. The signature hole is the 11th. It showcases the beautiful environment and the fair challenges that make the course so enjoyable.
