Caroline Golf Club in Madison, Mississippi (north of the Capitol City of Jackson) is the 18-hole semi-private course located at the 3,500 acre Lake Caroline development--an upscale residential development centered around a 850 acre lake that bears its name.  In fact, the lake itself is the largest private man-made lake in the state of Mississippi and the scene for a number of nationally televised fishing programs.  While working as the Senior Design Associate for Maxwell Golf Group, Mr. Crace was a member of the project team for the planning and design of the golf course and its related facilities.  The course has hosted a number of mini Tour events since opening in 1996 and has grown to be known for its aesthetics and "playability"--with expanded chipping areas on nearly each green complex and a number of holes designed in an open "links-like" setting.  

The closing three holes on the front nine wrap around the banks of Lake Caroline and from the highest point on the course (the championship tee on hole #15), golfers can see the majority of the lake itself--nearly one-half mile away!   Although the course is a favorite of golfers of all skill levels, it is still challenging enough for the best players.   In fact, the 17th hole is the longest par 3 in the state from the championship tees (measuring some 240 yards with a carry over water from the tee to the bulk-headed green perched on a peninsula!  Pot bunkers, extensive mounding and native grasses throughout add to the experience of Caroline Golf Club--a course destined to grow in popularity with the recent construction of a new Nissan plant only ten miles away in Canton, Mississippi.

UPDATE: Caroline Golf Club closed its doors on February 28, 2007 when the cost of operations became too great in a weakening economy.  The course re-opened under new ownership in 2010.
