This course is a beautiful challenge minutes outside of Spearfish. There are plenty of signs are warnings to not enter the tall grass due to snakes, so play smart!

This is a very nice golf course set in the Black Hills of South Dakota . . . especially the back nine holes, which just opened in 2016. There are more than a few challenges for the average golfer - including a few 'blind' shots...More

This course blends beautifully with the natural landscape! It's challenging, yet meticulously maintained. The clubhouse has a nice variety of clothing and golf accessories.
