The Gauntlet is situated along the banks of the lake that is the centerpiece of Curtis Memorial Park. When it first opened in 1995, Golf Digest recognized it as one of the "top ten new courses to play in the U.S." This challenging layout will definitely test your shot making abilities. The golf course begins with a tough front nine that has several sharp doglegs over water and tall grasses. There are also a slew of blind shots. The back nine is a bit gentler since there's less water and it is more open and forgiving, but the large, multi-tiered greens can be tricky. The fourth hole is the golf course's signature. Your tee shot will have to carry a marsh to a narrow landing area on this par 5. After that, you'll be faced with a triple-tiered green with the lake to the left and bunkers to the right.

Gauntlet Golf Club Review

The Gauntlet is one of the top corses in the area. It is easy to book tee times,; the staff is very friendly helpful; and the bar and food service is great. The course is demanding and the greens challenging. Makes a golfer come Bach for more

First Time Playing

Decent course

I hope I am not being too harsh. In fall, it’s difficult to maintain course due to leafs everywhere but the course was open. So I expected greens and fairways to be leaf free but wasn’t the case. Couldnt find ball in fairways. Putting was impossible due to leafs everywhere,

Course was great

Course looked good with the exception of about 3-4 holes that had some roughy looking greens. Bunkers where plush and fairways where good.

A Great Day For Golf

The course was in good condition. The staff there is always pleasant and great to deal with. Today's pace of play was not good. 5 groups on one hole due to a tournament and FROG's After getting through the 1st 9 it was perfect.

Very enjoyable round!

This was our 2nd time playing here. Course was in very good shape. Some of the greens had some rough places but that really didn’t hurt our play. The layout is super with lots of doglegs and obstacles. We will certainly play here again!
