Hole by Hole Course Description

Unique in design, stunning in scenery, abundant in amenities and painless in price, Carroll Valley Golf Course at Liberty Mountain Resort really does have it all. The marvelous 18-hole masterpiece offers extreme diversity with its six par 3s, five par 5s and seven par 4s that test every aspect of the golf game. Not to mention, the resort also offers hotel accommodations along with restaurant service to take a quick pick-up game with your buddies and turn it into a weekend getaway.

Front Nine

Just steps from the clubhouse, the front nine begins with a booming par 5. The slight dogleg right features a green that still seems forever away when lining up for the second shot. Knock one close on a short chip and the round should start with a solid score. The second hole will have you guessing early on as only half of the fairway is visible from the tee. Get comfortable trying to read the putting surface here as luck with the flat stick is going to be hard to find the rest of the way. While the greens roll magnificently and are manicured to perfection, they provide as much frustration as they do fancy which can easily be experienced at No. 3. The first of the par 3s appears fairly routine as long as you clear the stream in front of the dance floor; however, the green slopes dramatically from back to front with undulations causing a guessing game when it comes to speed and breaks. Now shift from the softest of touch to the most demanding of drives as you arrive at the 584-yard, par 5 fourth.

The longest and hardest rated hole on the course features a blind tee shot, followed by a decision to lay up or try to carry the stream that once again appears in front of the green. Hit the slightly elevated putting surface with your third and a birdie here is not unthinkable. The fifth hole requires a long iron to reach its relatively flat green and will provide a solid tally if you land close. A pair of par 4s follow with the sixth playing uphill into a narrow fairway that will demand accuracy from the driver. If the bunkers are avoided on both, some positive momentum might be on the agenda. Moving on to No. 8, this hole plays to 223-yards from the back and also features a tough to navigate putting surface. Standing on the ninth tee, you are given two choices as a lake creates a border as well as an obstacle.

First, play it safe and put one out in the short fairway to the left of the water or second, grip and rip a driver over the sprawling blue sparkle and hope to land somewhere on the other side. Either way, a powerful second shot will be required to either clear the water or to get up the hill toward the green that overlooks nearly the entire course. Keep your composure and miss the four bunkers on the hillside and you might have yourself a hole to remember for the score along with its beauty.

Back Nine

The 10th hole features the lake on at least two shots as it borders the right side of the extremely slim fairway and then extends out in front of a small landing zone before the green. Not that keeping the ball dry isn't enough of a task but you must also miss the sand around the green to secure par here. Carroll Valley then reels the golfer back in with a 213-yard par 3 that should provide some relief if you found the water on the previous two holes. Diversity shines as you move onto the par 5 12th that lunges over 500 yards across the base of the mountain and requires two full swings from the average golfer before thinking about knocking one close.

The 13th and 14th act somewhat as twin par 4s in regards to both length and layout. Both play fairly straight-away with measurements of slightly over 400 yards with the only real difference being the stream that crosses over from No. 12 to guard the dance floor on the 14th. The 15th is home to the second par 3 of the back with the flag positioned uphill far enough that the surface is not fully visible from the tee. Replace your ball mark, sink your putt and move on to the second hardest rated hole on the course, No. 16. This hole funnels to the left and into vegetation that will quickly conceal you from finding the blind tee shot.

Reach the slightly elevated green in two and the stretch run could be a promising one. Carroll Valley's final par 5 is a monstrous gem that begs for a pounded drive, a well struck second shot and a soaring approach that will stick to the downhill putting surface when it lands. Not only is the 18th the sixth par 3, but it runs parallel to the ski lifts that transport thousands up and down the slopes in the winter months. The green rests near the hotel and provides a breathtaking view of the hillside and its valley. Whether you enjoy teeing it up in the warmer months or shredding the slopes in the winter, Liberty Mountain Resort has you covered with four seasons of enjoyment.
