The Alpine Golf Club is a fun 18-hole Par 70 public course and has been open since 1955! This 6,176 yard course is perfect for the beginner and a challenge for any player. You’ll need to hit it straight because of the tree-lined fairways, but nailing the driver off the tee is not a requirement and you’ll be in good shape on many holes with a solid fairway wood or long iron. Watch out for No. 9 when you play from the back tees at 240 yards, many will need to use the driver!
