Many holes are named in honor of a special person or event that shaped the town or the course. The "monster par 5" No. 6, running 605 yards from the hack, is dubbed Civil War Reunion for the annual fall gathering to celebrate veterans, first started after the Civil War. President's Landing, the par 4 No. 9, marks the spot where President Jimmy Carter flew in on the Marine One helicopter to inspect flood damage in 1979. The most dramatic views are from two par 4s that tee from a ridge above the course.
No. 4 is True Gravity, from Michael Murphy's mysterious book Golf in the Kingdom,set in a world where extraordinary powers are unleashed in a backswing governed by "true gravity." Cliff Top, No. 7, bits over the bend in the river and looks more difficult than it is, giving golfers a great sense of accomplishment.
