The Cardinal golf course offers an equitable test for golfers of all skill levels with its two lakes and meandering creeks that add both beauty and challenges to the course. As one of 15 McConnell Golf courses in the region, you’ll notice the pure golf experience in the condition of the greens and the staff’s attention to detail. Members and non-members alike have the opportunity to play the par-70 course which was redesigned in 2007. According to legendary architect Pete Dye, its 12th hole is the hardest par 3 he ever designed.
