East Course

Considered to be the most challenging, the East Course, formerly known as the Grey Fox, covers hilly terrain with several doglegs cut through towering pines. Shot making is a premium on this well bunkered layout with characteristic elevated greens. Heavily guarded with deep bunkers, golfers find it important to position the ball on the proper side of the fairway to get the best approach angle to these slightly smaller greens. In the best condition it has been in over 10 years, the East course provides all level of golfers to a playable challenge. If you played this course several years ago, it is time to see it again, we think you will be pleasantly surprised.

From the 1st tee box, golfers look downhill to a large lake jutting out to divide the fairway forcing players to hit 3 or 5 woods. Often with a slightly downhill lie, the second shot on this par 5 requires a well struck shot across the hazard to set up and approach to the narrow but deep green. The 6th hole requires a solid tee shot to cross a large pond. Try to cut off more than you can chew and a watery grave awaits your ball. Like most holes on this course, the forward tees do not require golfers to carry water but sensibly offers plenty of space to go around. On the East side of Hoffman Rd. the newest developed holes offer steeper hills and panoramic views. The most scenic holes, #9 , #12 and #13, require well placed tee shots with demanding approaches to multi-tiered greens that are slightly smaller than the opening holes. The East course is on the rise to be a favorite among locals and visitors alike.
West Course

——————————————————————————–

Preferred by many Members, the West Course, formerly known as the Red Fox, offers wide manicured fairways and large elevated fast rolling greens. Water comes into play on 6 holes requiring forced carries from the back tees but with the option of going around the hazards from the forward tees. Fairway bunkers are strategically placed to grab the wayward shot and there is no lack of sand guarding the greens. This beautiful Gene Hamm design offers plenty of “bail out” places to avoid the most severe drop offs and deep faced bunkers. The G-6 hybrid bent grass greens hold shots well, but may confound even the best of putters with their characteristic subtle breaks.

The West Course offers its fair share of risk/reward shots often daring the advanced players to cut corners or play it safe. The 2nd hole is the most difficult at Foxfire. With water on the left and a steep climb to a huge green with a deceiving false front, this par 4 plays much longer than the 408 yards on the scorecard. The longest hitters may attempt to carry the water, but they need to fly the ball over 260 yards to clear the hazard. The 12th hole measures 573 from the back tees with a tight second shot and a challenging uphill approach to a triple tiered green. Give the West Course a try and tell us about your favorite hole.
