Inspired by Scottish tradition, all three nine-hole layouts at Heather Glen benefit from the genius of nationally known architects Willard Byrd and Clyde Johnston. The par-3 eighth, which is 224 yards from the back tees, has a green that is protected by a pond bordered in granite, with nasty pot bunkers and mounding front and back. The two finishing holes on this nine are excellent. No. 8 is called "The Spectacle," where the fairway is split by a wood-bunkered waste area and water. You can go right and be safe or left and be a daredevil. No. 9 is a 587-yard par 5 that is reachable in two because the green sits at a right angle to the fairway. To reach it though, you'll need to be on the right side of the fairway where you'll have to skirt tall trees and carry the long lake — sorry, "loch" — to reach safely.
