    The Honors Course has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.

    This course provides six separate tee boxes to satisfy every level of golfer. It is best described as "difficult but fair". This natural links-style course has very demanding holes that require accurate shot placements. The fast greens vary in size and undulation. Water hazards come into play on at least five holes. All eighteen holes never play the same way twice, so you shouldn't get bored playing this course more than once. "GOLF Magazine" ranked this course 35th among the "Top 100 Courses in the U.S." for 1995, and 40th for 1997 and 1999. "GOLFWEEK" selected it 3rd among "America's 100 Best Modern Courses" for 1997, 5th for 1998 and 8th for 1999. The club hosted the U.S. Amateur in 1991 and the Curtis Cup in 1994. The men's NCAA Championships were held here in 1996. Caddies are mandatory if you choose to walk the course.
