Although the accommodations and reasonable rates attract people to the resort, it’s the golf that brings them back. Coachman’s Golf Resort will never host a U.S. Open-there isn’t a high degree of difficulty on any of the nines-but that, too, is by design. Johnson said he feels that there is nothing wrong with allowing golfers to score well, and the course is set up to bring out the best in players, many of whom are senior golfers. “We try not to make the course too difficult. That way, people score well and it speeds up play,” he said.
Johnson has been on something of a trap building spree over the last few years, however, because “sand is part of the game,” he said. The current layout features about 35 sand traps, compared to only one on the entire course just a few years ago.
After clearing the pond-which, no doubt, snares it’s share of sliced tee shots- an accurate second shot is required to a green guarded by mature trees on three sides. With the addition of the traps, Johnson hopes to make the fifth the course’s signature hole.
