The Links’ wide-open nine, reminiscent of old Scottish-style courses, will bring windy conditions into play that can make club selection challenging. Strategically contoured greens require well-placed approach shots and precision putting. The longest of Orange Lake's championship golf holes at 610 yards, The Links hole #4 is a good warm-up before venturing into The Pines.
The Pines’ towering pines, majestic oaks, winding fairways and flowing water create a serene setting complementing each hole on the back nine. Tee shots are fired between strategic openings cut through the trees. A wayward shot here could result in a ball pushed deep in the woods. Much like the classic courses of North Carolina, proper club selection and accuracy are required to successfully navigate through The Pines. The Island Oak, hole #13, is the feature hole at The Legends course.
