The course was designed by Jerry Pate. Canebrake first opened for play in the fall of 1998.
The course is a typical Jerry Pate design with severly sloping greens, square tee boxes, and odd shaped bunkers. The greens are large and undulating. The fairways are rolling and have some elevation change. A few of the holes are tree lined. Seven holes play around a large lake. There is an abundance of wetlands. Overall the course is both challenging and fair.
The signature hole is #16, a 243 yard par-3 that requires a tee shot over water. Water and sand surround the green.
Par for the course is 71. From the back tees the course plays to 7003 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5129 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 2, a par-5 that plays to 544 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 4, a par-3 that plays to 181 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 3, a 428 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 14, a 376 yard par-4.

I've played the course several times while visiting friends who are members. The course is a good track, very well maintained, great clubhouse and staff made me feel welcome. I am retiring in the near future and will be moving to the area. I'm considering this course for my home course.
