The Cobb Course, built in 1972 by renowned architect
George Cobb, is a classic-style course that is the only course
to bear his name. Cobb is particularly noted as the design
consultant to Augusta National for 20 years, and is also
the designer of Augusta National’s famous Par 3 Course.
Cobb was the designer of other great courses, such as Quail
Hollow in Charlotte, N.C., which hosts the annual Wachovia
Championship on the PGA tour.
This timeless masterpiece, a par 72, stretches over 7,100
yards and features rolling hills, ponds and massive greens,
strategically placed bunkers, and a lot of movement from
hole to hole. Holes that move from right to left and from left
to right are equal in number. It is an excellent shot maker’s
course that tests the best golfers and a uniquely playable
course for those mid-to high-handicappers.
One of the Cobb Course’s most outstanding holes is No. 16.
This 420-yard par 4 is the first of three great finishing holes
and forces the golfer to carry water three different times,
twice off the tee, and on the second shot to a well bunkered
green. This is a hole that is very influential in the many
tournaments that The Resort at Glade Springs hosts.
Cobb Course is the only course created by George Cobb that bears
his name. It’s a timeless masterpiece featuring rolling hills, ponds
and massive greens and a lot of movement from hole to hole.
