Castle Creek Country Club first opened for play in 1956. The course was redesigned in 1983 by Jack Daray, Jr. and Stephen Halsey and later by Perry Dye.

Watch out for # 6, the 596 yard par-5 challenge is the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 15, a 158 yard par-3.

Castle Creek is an older style traditional layout that is quite nice and many will find it a charming departure from the mega course factory design prevelent in many areas today. The mature trees make great hazards and the raised greens make shorter holes play longer, the traps are deep and the greens are undulating. The course is located in the basin of a valley. The Castle Creek River flows throughout the course and comes into play on six holes, including four of the last six. There are many oak and pine trees lining the fairways.
