Designer: Greg Norman
Course Opened: 2007

In Volume 3 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that.

“This modern course is part of the large ClubLink chain of affiliated private courses, and one of the most popular of the group because of its difficulty. A good portion of the course is laid out in the bowels of a restored quarry, and though there are no severe rock faces as with some of the famous quarry courses in the U.S., there are lots of big, sharp slopes to the sides of the holes, generally used to threaten the golfer instead of to contain him.

Walkability takes a back seat to drama here. Four of the better holes on the course [the 3rd through 6th] sit away from the quarry, separated from the rest by a 200-yard belt of trees. Then onto the back nine, the routing jumps back and forth so that the quarry wall will be a factor on the right side of one hole and the left of another. Sacrificing a smooth flow of play for “balance” in the hazards is usually a poor trade, but only those who choose to walk will notice.”

The Wyndance Golf Club received a score of 5 out of 10 from Tom Doak.
