The Links

This remote course has fairways of fescue and greens of bentgrass, but you can still putt from well off the green if the shot calls for it. Dismal River golf course grabs your attention from the first hole. It features an inspired dogleg left and leaves you with a couple of choices. Decide whether to carry the fairway bunkers or lay up.

The challenge goes on from there with a second hole nicknamed “Trust your caddie” because you’ll need a guide to help show you the way over hill and dale. This is a rugged, challenging, course you’ll want to play again.
