The finely manicured golf course features bluegrass tees and fairways and bent grass greens which are medium and size and mild in undulation. Most fairways are flanked by

During our mid-September visit, the course was in excellent condition from tee to green. The course is also well marked, with the Kirby System in place on both the cart paths and
fairways (markers every 25 yards from 200 – 75 yards out). Sprinkler heads are also measured to the center of the green, and color coded flags indicate the days front, middle or
back hole locations.
There are 4 sets of tee boxes with distances and slopes measuring 7026 yards/139 slope, 6454 yards/136 slope, 5987 yards with a slope of 127 for men and 142 for women, and
5077 yards with a slope of 123 for ladies hitting from the forward sets. Inverness is a player friendly layout - with a traditional design that is greatly appreciated by members and
resort guests. If you have a chance to stay here - take the opportunity to play! For more info, visit our page for the course, with direct link to their website by clicking here.
