Our course is not the typical American park-style course. We follow a more European vision of minimal irrigation, naturalized "waste areas," and small greens with lots of movement. Less is more! The course changes with the seasonal rains, forcing the golfer to adapt. Visitors from Scotland have told us, "It feels like home."
Course design, construction, and maintenance is undertaken by the owners, extended family, and friends. Bent-grass greens, bluegrass, and fescue fairways and tees are used throughout. It is--and always will be--a work of love in progress (both of the land and the game). We minimize pesticide and herbicide to enable as many people as possible to enjoy the course without fear of risk.
The course is currently nine holes, with unused portions left fallow in tall grasses. There is room for 18, but we wrestled with the notion of expansion. Could it be done without violating the core simplicity of what we were attempting to accomplish? Could we continue to provide family affordable golf? Some tell us that nine holes isn't really a golf course. Some think of home built, country tracks as "pitch and putt" sites. Usually those same people come into the clubhouse muttering, "This place was way more than I expected."
Instead of having men's or women's tees, we offer golfers
"Abili-tees:" teeing areas that are best suited to your experience and skill. At the Argue-Ment, we have five teeing areas: orange, red, white, blue, and black. White, blue, and black have been rated and sloped for USDA handicapped purposes (see below), while orange and red have not. Click here to learn more about Abili-tees and your personal yardage goals!
