Laurel Hill Golf Course, is a Public, 9 hole golf course located in Central Point, Oregon.
Laural Hill first opened for play in 1977. The course was designed by Harvey Granger.
Laurel Hill has been compared to a regulation course with the drives removed. The four par-4s are in the 275-300 yard range, but because of the tree-lined doglegs they require two good iron shots to reach the green.
The ninth hole has a pond in the dogleg, and an extremely accurate layup is needed to set up a good second shot. Of the par-threes, the second and third holes are guarded on the left by a creek in a steep ravine banked with blackberries, and the fifth and sixth holes have relatively small greens, the latter having a tricky slope.
The course record for many years, held by John Steely and Don Hodgen, was 27, four strokes below the par 31, but Chad Vicklund recently lowered it to 25.
Laurel Hill Golf Course plays to 1,915 yards from the back tees. The course rating is 62 and the slope rating is 102.

Tree-lined cheap course. We'll sometimes head out there with 7-irons and putters- tin cup style. Not bad for the price and the challenge if you're feeling like mixing it up.
