enthusiasts, no place at Comanche Trace feels more at home than teeing it up on
one of the club’s three nine-hole layouts.
18-hole course, The Hills and The Valley nines, opened in late 1999 and was

for play in 2008 and was designed by Jay and Carter Morrish. It’s not only the
newest of the nines, but also considered the most difficult owing in large part
