Blackthorn Club Golf Course was designed by Arthur Hills. Hills drapes his courses around a simple idea--to capture the beauty of a place, not alter it. Across the graceful landscape of Blackthorn Club, Hills has drawn on this same sensibility to lay out a masterpice of hole-to-hole variety----what he calls “a golfer’s delight. ” Like every great course, Blackthorn Club gives the golfer drama and excitement. You encounter water on seven holes, magnificent views and heart-pounding approach shots to the greens. For instance, hole #8, where golfers can play “safe” to the right side of Boones Creek or try to carry the green in two by flying over the water twice.
