Shingle Creek Golf Club Shines Again With Four-Star Rating From Golf Digest

Shingle CreekShingle Creek Golf Club, which is approaching its fifth anniversary in December, keeps getting better with age, particularly in the eyes of Golf Digest. Shingle Creek has received four stars from the Golf Digest guide as one of the best places to play 2008/2009. The extensive guide offers complete profiles of more than 4,000 of the best courses in North America, with comments and ratings from numerous avid golfers.

The profiles include such things as addresses, green fees, pars, yardage, USGA slope ratings, caddies, carts, lodging and practice ranges. 

"Everyone enjoys receiving a four-star rating and we are particularly honored that our golf course and facility has achieved that level of recognition from as a publication as prestigious as Golf Digest," says Dave Scott, Director of Golf at Shingle Creek Golf Club. "From the moment Shingle Creek opened in December, 2003, we strived to provide golfers with the best playing conditions in a setting that is both eminently fair and challenging. In being rated as four stars, it's obvious that we have succeeded."

According to the magazine, Rosen Shingle Creek had high marks in every category.

"To sum things up succinctly, Shingle Creek Golf Club, combined with the entire Rosen Shingle Creek facility, is the complete package," says Scott. "As Golf Digest says, it's four stars all the way."
