Red Fox Course
Well-known to be the members favorite course, the Red Fox Course measures in at 6,743-yards Par 72 and is characterized by its immaculate rolling fairways and large elevated fiery greens.
Water hazards come into play on six holes which require golfers to carry large distances or bail out and go round. The course also has a collection of well-placed fairway bunkers, where wayward drives and approach shots are punished.
On the whole however, the course is a wonderfully accessible Gene Hamm design and a real pleasure to play.
Grey Fox Course Often referred to as the more challenging of the two courses, the Grey Fox course is a 6,834-yard Par 72 course which is characterized by its towering tree-lined fairways, hilly terrain and several doglegs.
An emphasis is put on a golfers ability to shot-make on the Grey Fox course with ball positioning being the key to success, golfers unfamiliar with the layout of this course will often find themselves blocked out of holes by trees, overhanging branches, water hazards and acute approach angles. However, on the whole similarly to the Red Fox, this course remains a sheer pleasure to play and is another testament to the fantastic design vision of Gene Hamm.
Of the two courses the Grey Fox has seen the most redesigns and improvements with Foxfire Golf Club going as far as to say ‘The Grey Fox is in the best condition it has been in over 10 years’, therefore if you haven’t played at Foxfire for a few years it may be time to return.
Of the 36-holes to choose from at Foxfire, the signature hole has to be the 9th Hole of the Grey Fox. Requiring golfers to hit a precise drive, followed up by a demanding approach shot to a multi-tiered green, it is one of the most picturesque holes found at Foxfire.
