The winghaven country Club - Private Course

https://www.winghavencc.com/golf

$185 green fee per person includes cart and transportation - ADVANCED REGISTRATION REQUIRED

Meet in Lobby at 6:15 am SHARP to take the bus to the course (Note: Shotgun start at 7:30am - 40 minute bus ride)

Jack Nicklaus and his design team have been recognized for their quality golf course layouts throughout the world. WingHaven Country Club ranks as one of their best, providing Members and Guests a golf experience that is easily enjoyed over and over.

The course can play as long as 7,230 yards from the Gold tees, however, offers a total of five different teeing areas to allow all skill levels a chance to challenge themselves appropriately. When strategizing on what style of layout to design, the owners of WingHaven, in cooperation with Nicklaus Design, focused on a layout that provided for top level competitive golf while emphasizing playability for the average golfer.

Several greens are designed in an amphitheater setting, which creates viewing space for spectators. The fairway landing areas throughout the course are generous; however, the approach shots are more demanding. Several approach shots require negotiating a Nicklaus Design signature deep bunker or water hazard. You will love the golf course at WingHaven Country Club.
