"Walking from Dancing Bull, you make your way through the natural Poplar trees. You move in and out of the sun rays that peek through the tree branches. At the end of the grove of tree's it opens up and the sun hits you with its full heat. As you walk the south side of the property winding through the natural fescue grasses the serene feeling overtakes you. This is "Sun Catcher!"

A sun catcher is the ‘optical’ equivalent of a wind chime. Some designs are simple and abstract. Some designs seem to dance in the sun and are called ‘Sun Dancers’. Sun Dancers are individual creations. It is what sets them apart from “art” that is mass produced.
The Sun Catcher Course is an individual creation, nothing about it is mass produced. When Gary Browning created Sun Catcher, the design was influenced by his mood, the weather, the site and the time of year. Just like a sun catcher, depending on the time of day, the weather, the wind, it will offer you a different, exciting and unique look each, and every time you play it.
The long shadows, the wild and rolling fairways, the treacherous, undulating greens will leave you with a sense of foreboding……..her raw beauty is disarming.
“Look difficult……….play fair”.
Sun Catcher Golf Club is defined by creative strategy and tight lines of attack……..a wayward shot off the tee may be findable in the benign fescue rough but the chance of birdie became highly improbable.
Sun Catcher Golf Club offers choices….
- The aggressive golfer can attack, take unusual risks and be rewarded.
- The conservative golfer can, manage his game, have FUN, and not be harshly penalized.
Sun Catcher Golf Club “dances” in the sun, just as its counterpart Dancing Bull. They each dance to a different drum, but both are diabolically related.
Sun Catcher is on the South half of the property, with water to navigate and natural fescue grasses lining the fairways, this course is setup for bump and run, knockdowns, and creative shots into the greens. You will find it on the left below with the numbers in black. You will see more of a brown fescue look between the holes representing more of a natural links-style versus the lush green parkland style of Dancing Bull.
