Golf at Old Works
While you're at Old Works, scoring a few bogies and trying desperately to avoid another sand trap, pause and take some time to enjoy the scenery. What is now a Jack Nicklaus Signature Course of lush fairways and loathed bunkers was once one of the largest Superfund waste areas in America. It's hard to believe that a century old copper smelter once inhabited this pristine golf course. Evidence of its smelting past have been incorporated into the design of Old Works, making for an interesting and unique golfing experience.
