Comments: I played Triple Creek during the last week of July with one of the original board members, Leonard Creek (Leonard has 2 brothers. 3 Creeks. Triple Creeks. Coincidence?) Leonard was an excellent host/guide and quite the gentleman. Triple Creek was opened in 2010 and was the vision of several enterprising men from Cole Camp. They did a lot of the work themselves and spent a fraction of what courses typically cost to build. For a course in a town with a population 1,000 Triple Creek is extraordinary. The zoysia fairways are lush and wide and the bent grass greens are as soft as a feather pillow. Triple Creek is basically a nine hole course but the group who built this course spent a great deal of time figuring out how to give the 9 holes an 18 hole course feel. Every hole has 2 separate tees for each level and the position of the tees give the holes a completely different feel. The tees for holes 9 and 18, for example, are on opposite sides of the green which is protected by a large lake. Hole 9 is a par 3 and 18 is a par 4. Both holes are excellent and very, very different considering they use the same green. This is a great course and you should take the time to find it and play it. Downtown Cole Camp is as Americana as you will find and there are a few excellent restaurants and bakeries. Jill and I went to Maple Street bake shop and had a tasty homemade muffin and coffee afterwards.
