Established in 1923, the Vulcan Golf and Country Club is a semi-private, 18-hole championship golf course. It opened in 1956 at its current location and the back nine was built and designed by Les Furber in 2007. The course offers two distinctly different nines; the front nine is a mature, well-treed layout while the back nine offers more of a links-style layout with large undulating greens protected with sand and water hazards. You can play two wholly different games on the same course. The pro shop provides an excellent selection of the latest in golf equipment and apparel, and the pro staff offers club fitting and lessons.
