The golf course was established in 1963, originally designed by Hal Purdy using the sloping terrain beautifully to provide a fun and challenging experience to members and guests. The course has undergone two Long Range Improvement Plans designed by Ron Forse who learned and developed his fundamentals of golf course architecture from Hal Purdy. During the most recent plan, bunkers were renovated in 2015/2016 with the Better Billy Bunker liner installed and the regrading of the 18th green to provide more cupping locations. With the latest plan completed, Forse Designs, including Ron Forse and Jim Nagle, completed another LRIP last season to assist the club over the next 10 years. Along with the LRIP, future projects on the course include regrading up to five more greens to provide more pin locations and the beginning planning for a new irrigation system planned to be installed in the next 3 or 4 years.
