    The Honors Course Golf Club Review




    The Honors golf club was established back in 1983, July 2nd and it makes for a private facility available for its members and their guests only. As its name suggests, the Honors golf course was built to honor the amateur golf-player and it was designed by the famous architect Pete Dye as a championship grade course. Truth be told, the design was regarded as nothing short of radical in the 80s, due to the courses tall, native grass rough, its very unusual at the time Zoysia grass fairways and its incredible, lightning fast greens. Today, the Honors golf course is considered a true Pete Dye signature, an impeccably preserved example of the architects death or glory approach to golf design. Staying true to its name and philosophy, the Honor has hosted quite a few regional, state, national and even international championships, including a Devonshire Cup in 1992, Mens and Womens Amateur Championships, US Mid Amateur Championships, NCAA Mens Division 1 Championship and so on and so forth in the clubs more than 3 decades old tradition.

    Pete Dye managed to create a monument dedicated to amateur golf, a true enclave for golf purists that still lives up to its name today. The course was built upon an ideal piece of real estate, 460 acres sitting at the base of White Mountain, with airy and open holes surrounded by an array of native grasses and fescue, pine trees and cedars, honeysuckle vines and blackberry bushes. The golf courses appeal is represented by its routing subtlety and its intrinsic beauty, along with the architects attention to details, which works wonders in elevating the players experience. The golf course at the Honors features 7215 yards from its longest tees for a 72 par and it makes for an exclusive, world class resort, boasting all its Pete Dye splendor.
