Crestmont Country Club is recognized for its dynamic and challenging par 72 championship golf course. At 6,886 yards from the back tees, with 93 sand bunkers, multiple water hazards and ultra fast, undulating greens, the course is a genuine challenge for the best of golfers. In 2008, Crestmont was a qualifying venue for a field of 52 players vying for a spot in the United States Senior Open and yielded only three scores below par.
Crestmont Country Club possess the original architectural drawings of famous Scottish course designer Donald Ross for each of the 18 championship holes (vintage 1927). And, in 2008, the club underwent a multi-year, multi-million dollar “restoration” project designed to return the course to Donald Ross’ original, spectacular vision. As a result, the course features immaculate tee boxes, fairways and putting greens manicured by in-house experts to traditional world-class specifications.
