Mill Creek Golf Club

Churchville NY


The renowned golf course design team of Raymond Hearn and Paul Albanese have created this unique course by blending the natural aesthetics of the land with the risk/reward factors of a well-crafted challenge. The intent is to deliver the most memorable experience to golfers of all skill levels. Five sets of tees accommodate the novice and challenge the expert by adjusting the angle and length of the course from less than 5,000 to just under 7,000 yards based on the player’s ability. Each player has a similar experience from tee to green, meshing mature trees and lush, bent grass fairways, greens and bunkers. Mill Creek offers large bent grass greens that are unique in design and construction. They average over 6,000 square feet and have mild undulations, making the surface interesting without being daunting. The sheer size and varied pin placements ensure great conditions for that true and fast feel.
