DaveFinn review

Apple Mountain is a year-round golf, ski, meeting and conference center with all the amenities imaginable, including two award-winning restaurants. 'Golf Magazine' claimed “the playing conditions are perfect”, and I would have to agree. John Sanford designed this fair-playing course with generous fairways, but be careful, there is water on 14 of the 18 holes, with plenty of bunkers and lots of contour to their greens. My favorite two holes were the 5th and 6th. Both stand on top of the man-made ski hill and offer majestic views of the valley. The 5th is a straight downhill, par 3 measuring 175 yards from the blacks (156 from the blues) with an apple-shaped green and bunker formation. Club selection is essential here. Don’t let the view from the tee of the 6th lull you into a false sense of security, since you’ll need an accurate drive on this hole to avoid the second set of wetlands and an apple-shaped fairway bunker. A very beautiful hole! This course will test your skills from all tee blocks, but bring your best game if you are going to test the black tees at 6962 yards with a slope of 145 and a course rating of 74.2.
