His mission was clear, design a suitable memorial challenge for the top players in the world. Designed to preserve the traditions and integrity of the game. From the moment you step onto the first tee, you know you are in for a treat. Terradyne offers one of the best representations of “Scottish” golf in the United States.
A “Players Course”, Terradyne is the best kept secret around. A supreme challenge of all abilities. From tee to green and from the first hole to the last, it is a test of golf. The superb layout requires proper selection of golf clubs and planned strategy for rewarded shot making.
Rolling rye grass fairways, numerous sand and grass bunkers and bent grass greens offer a memorable experience.
2009 marked a year of tremendous growth with the addition of varietal practice facilities, including a 3-hole practice course complete with Par 3, Par 4 and Par 5 rolling fairways.
