Alright, let’s level set. I’ve got good news, and bad news. First the good. The Golf Club at Cuscowilla is every bit as good as you’d expect from a Coore & Crenshaw design.
Now, the bad. Recently, Cuscowilla went private! I know, I know – it’s quite the bummer. So while it ranked 56th on the most recent Golf Digest list of America’s Greatest 100 Public Courses (2015-2016), it won’t be eligible for the new list. At any rate, if you do happen to find a way onto the course, you’ll love what you see.
You get a little bit of everything at Cuscowilla from tree and fescue-lined fairways, to lakeside holes and plenty of red-colored bunkers unique to this golf course.
The layout features two reachable par-4’s (confirming my belief that every new golf course should feature at least one.
I’d recommend cashing in on some of that goodwill you have with your local pro to see if he can make a call and get you out here. The Golf Club at Cuscowilla is certainly worth a play.
