About Canyon Nine

Tom Kite designed Canyon Nine with a different methodology than the nearby 18-hole Championship Course, which is privately owned. He envisioned a series of controlled hitting areas rather than traditional tee boxes. You will notice these areas denoted on all holes. Varying your tee-off location will help reduce wear and tear to isolated tees. Holes #5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 each incorporate two separate hitting areas to appeal to different levels of play. Hole #9 is the course’s signature hole encompassing a beautiful water feature.
