Tee Times Stay & Play

Play The Bootlegger

The Bootlegger

It’s been a great day of golf. You’ve had a few drinks, finished a meal and now you have the bug to get back out and play a few more holes. The Bootlegger is just the ticket to top off your day. There’s no need for formalities or scorecards here. Whether you’re a single or a large group, head over to the first tee with a couple wedges, a putter and a beverage. Kick off your shoes, enjoy the music and go for the green.

“We wanted it to be fun and always engaging, and we were able to express that in the design.”

—Keith Rhebb

The Bootlegger is a 10-hole short course that puts an emphasis on fun versus your score in relation to par. Sitting atop a peaceful, rolling bulge of land positioned perfectly between The Loop and Forest Dunes, Bootlegger’s fun, strategic holes measure between 50 and 140 yards, and create an energetic hot spot for golfers of all ages and skill levels.

Riley Johns and Keith Rhebb first met when both men worked on site at Cabot Cliffs, the Bill Coore / Ben Creshaw World Top 100 golf course in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. The two subsequently partnered on a number of projects including Winter Park in Florida, Point Grey in British Columbia and Rolling Green in Delaware.

“The land gave us such a great canvas to create something fun that offers a welcoming handshake to entry-level players and says, ‘This is what golf can be,’” Johns told Forbes magazine about Bootlegger.

“You can go out in your flip flops and hit flop shots with a few buddies, try to make an ace on every hole, or use a putter off the tee to try and run one on the green.”
