The Preserve Golf Club is evidence of Jerry Pate's belief that a golf course should enhance the natural aesthetic of the land and provide flexibility of shot values. The 18-hole public course, designed by the U.S. Open champion and award winning golf course designer, is adjacent to an 1,800-acre nature preserve.

Mossy, majestic live oaks reach out over the golf course, and tall, slender long leaf pines line the generous fairways. Wild, wiry grasses disperse texture and color against the smooth, rolling greens. The uniquely Southern cypress swamps, marshy wetlands and pitcher plant bogs scatter the area, adding diversity to the landscape and challenge to the game.

The Preserve Golf Club, which opened in 2006, measures 6,774 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 136 and a 72.8 USGA rating. The course features four sets of tees for different skill levels.

Golf Digest selected the course as one of America's Best New Courses in the "Best New Public $75 and Over" category for 2007.
