Considered to be the most challenging, the Foxfire Resort - East Course, formerly known as the Grey Fox, covers hilly terrain with several doglegs cut through towering pines. Shot making is a premium on this well bunkered layout with characteristic elevated greens. Heavily guarded with deep bunkers, golfers find it important to position the ball on the proper side of the fairway to get the best approach angle to these slightly smaller greens. In the best condition it has been in over 10 years, the East course provides all level of golfers to a playable challenge. If you played this course several years ago, it is time to see it again, we think you will be pleasantly surprised.
From the 1st tee box, golfers look downhill to a large lake jutting out to divide the fairway forcing players to hit 3 or 5 woods. Often with a slightly downhill lie, the second shot on this par 5 requires a well struck shot across the hazard to set up and approach to the narrow but deep green. The 6th hole requires a solid tee shot to cross a large pond. Try to cut off more than you can chew and a watery grave awaits your ball. Like most holes on this course, the forward tees do not require golfers to carry water but sensibly offers plenty of space to go around. On the East side of Hoffman Rd. the newest developed holes offer steeper hills and panoramic views. The most scenic holes like #9 , #12 and #13 require well placed tee shots with demanding approaches to multi-tiered greens that are slightly smaller than the opening holes. The East course is on the rise to be a favorite among locals and visitors alike.
