FOUNDERS COURSE

In the years since its opening, the Founders Course has been tapped with several awards of distinction. Among our proudest accomplishments was the hosting of The Bruno's Memorial Classic, a regular stop on the Champions Tour from 1992-2005. Past Champion Larry Nelson described our tournament as "...the Masters of the Champions Tour". Jay Sigel added, "When someone is considering hosting a Champions Tour Event, they must first come to Greystone to see how it is done."

The Founders Course, with its undulating greens and expansive fairways, is a course that demands solid ball striking and a deft touch on the greens. The back nine offers a unique layout of three par-3, three par-4 and three par-5 holes that give players an opportunity to make some great scores. The 18th is a classic example of a risk-reward hole. Three well-played shots will give a player a good chance at par, but if a better score is needed, a more risky shot will be needed and danger looms for any miss. The Founders Course also boasts a full complement of world-class practice facilities. A full driving range, short game practice area and 8,000 square foot putting green are available year round for members to hone their skills.

FOUNDERS CLUBHOUSE

This stately building was completed in 1992. Reminiscent of a traditional English Manor, The Founders Clubhouse combines sophistication and intimacy in an elegant setting. The Main Dining Room, Trophy Room, 19th Hole, two terraces with astonishing views and Board Room are located inside the Founders Clubhouse. The view from the back terrace is of the Founders course signature # 18 hole framed by the beautiful mountainside of Double Oak Mountain. With three dining areas, the clubhouse offers many different settings for our members to enjoy their meals at the club. The 19th Hole offers quick, casual meals for anyone who wants to enjoy a fine meal on a tight schedule. The Trophy Room serves as home for our members who want to come in after a round of golf to sit and enjoy rehashing some of their shots. The Main Dining Room overlooks the 18th hole at the Founders Course and gives our members the intimate setting that they are looking for when coming to the club for lunch or dinner.
