Longhills' lasting legacy

August 25, 2014

Mark Twain is credited with the quote, "Golf is a good walk spoiled."

Longhills opened as a 9-hole course built by Bill Martin in 1955 and through various renovations and growth, the course extended to a full 18-hole, 6,400-yard layout in the 1960s.

The Martins were the original owners.
