Knob Hill Park is sponsored by Prodigy Disc
Knob Hill is true to its name, with striking downhill shots and huff n’ puff approaches to some fast greens. Many long, open and grassy fairways, a water hazard, and plenty of hardwoods force accurate throws. Well-marked tee signs and putting basket.
Course opened in 1994 with current White tee-A pin layout, and expanded in stages to include Red, White and Blue tees and three pin placements per hole that challenge all level of players.
Tees: Red tees, natural (Recreational 850-rating); White tees, concrete (Intermediate 900-rating); Blue tees, concrete (Advanced 950-rating).
Targets: Prodigy DGT1, A/B/C pin locations.
Par: Red 63, White 63, Blue 63.
Designers: KB Clark, J. Gary Dropcho, Michael Novara.
