The Golden Horseshoe Golf Club is a championship venue widely acclaimed for its two dynamic golf designs: the Gold Course, originally designed by the famed Robert Trent Jones Sr. and renovated by his son Rees Jones (6,817 yards from the championship tees), and the Green Course, a Rees Jones layout (7,120 yards from the tips). The Golden Horseshoe was most recently recognized as one of the Top 75 Golf Resorts in North America by Golf Digest and a Readers Choice Top 50 Golf Resort by Golf World.
