Give Our Readers An Overview of the Golf Course/Property
While Sycamore Creek may not be the easiest golf course at the Lake to play, it is one that will help your game the most. You can use every club in your bag and will be challenged to "manage" your game. It will be the round that helps you improve your game and get stronger as a player.
If Someone Was Looking To Golf In The Area, Why Should They Play Your Course?
Sycamore Creek is a beautiful golf course set among the rolling hills with wildlife in abundance. Deer, turkeys and even bald eagles are a common sighting here at the course.
Another great reason to play at Sycamore Creek is that you will be treated as a friend. When you walk in the door you are greeted with a hello and an invitation to enjoy our golf course. If you visit our snack bar at the turn you will again be greeted by our friendly staff and helped with a smile. We know you have many choices of golf courses to play here at the Lake, and we appreciate when you choose Sycamore Creek.
What Tips or Local Knowledge Would You Provide To Help Them Score Better At Your Course?
Do not take a driver out of the bag on every tee. This is not necessary and could actually be a detriment to your score. Look at the yardage and the a layout of the hole and pick the club that will be the best for you.
Recent Awards or What You Are Most Proud About The Course?
Sycamore Creek has been open for 20 years this year, and we are very proud to have a solid base of members that rejoin our course every year and enjoy playing. And we have a great number of players that we see every year that are from out of town, and they make Sycamore Creek one of their stops when they are at the Lake. It is a great honor to get to know golfers well enough over the years to call them your friends. We at Sycamore Creek are blessed to have lots of good golfing friends!
Must Have Dish or Drink after the round at the 19th Hole?
Our hot dogs are well know in the community, and not just with the golfers. Bigger than most any hot dog you will find, they have a great taste and we have people stop by just to eat lunch. Make sure you try a hot dog when playing at Sycamore Creek!
