Perhaps You've Never Heard of Architect George Cobb. Chances Are if You've Ever Vacationed in the Southeast, You've Played One or More of His Courses.
In the mid-1950s, Cobb set up shop in Greenville, South Carolina and took advantage of a booming golf
development climate in the southeast to create more than 100 original designs, along with dozens of redesigns. Perhaps his most prominent design is his shortest course: The Par-3 Course at Augusta National Golf Club, which he completed in 1959 (with a little help from Masters domos Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts). Alister MacKenzie had first proposed an "approach-and-putt" nine-holer as early as 1932, but it took another 26 years before the short course concept was green lighted. He also designed Goose Pond Colony in Scottsboro, AL.
Let Jim Settles, Head Golf Professional, Give You a Quick Assessment of Play at Burningtree: While we don't really have a “signature' hole, you'll find challenge and enjoyment on our fine, risk/reward course.
Heed Jim's advice: "Your first six holes generally go a long way in determining your round. There are birdies to be had on the back nine, with a chance for salvation to your round."
We overseed the driving range and aerate twice a year (spring, summer) with as little interruption to your play and enjoyment as possible. Expect typical “seasonal” play for this climate – lively in the spring and summer, dormant in winter.
