Chatham Seaside Links

This is a funky course that starts with a funky first hole. Sorry to be redundant, but it is funky. It starts with a red/green light that tells you when it is safe to attempt your first drive of the day. Be careful when teeing off on each hole – there are many blind tee shots.  Read more →

Hole #6 - UNM - North Course

UNM – North Course – Hole #6 – Par 4, 393 yards

Located in the Black Hills National Forest, the tall pine trees isolate you from the hustle and bustle of tourist crowds and as their website states, “provides a setting not easily matched by any other course in the country”. Took the words right out of my mouth.  Read more →
