Woodloch’s spectacular, 18-hole, championship, par-72 golf course winds its challenging way over 6,579 yards of fern-carpeted forests, lush wetlands, and broad upland meadows.  Designed by Rocky Roquemore, this stunning course offers four sets of tees on every hole so that all levels of play can be accommodated.  The outstanding signature 14th hole is an experience itself.  It requires a dramatic 220-yard carry over “Hells Gate Gorge,” which is carved from the rugged mountainside by rushing water some 200 feet below.
