Colonial Golfers Club is a beautiful course with a diverse array of holes to challenge any golfer. This course was built on rolling terrain, so expect uneven lies. The large greens are undulating and easy to three putt. Water hazards come into play on 14 holes. White stakes and fence lines represent the out-of-bounds areas. Locals boast that you will need every club in your bag when playing this course.
The course earned a 3 1/2-star rating from Golf Digest.
The signature hole is No. 6, a beautiful dog-leg that plays 401 yards from the championship tees. A big hitter can cut the corner and set up a short iron to a deep, narrow green protected by a pond on the right and rocks coupled with a small creek on the left.
