Colonial Country Club offers members two distinct and challenging 18-hole golf courses-Jackson and Deerfield. Located some 15 miles apart, each facility offers its own individual playing characteristics, driving ranges, chipping and putting practice areas. Two courses allow members to play seven days a week! Walking is permissible. Colonial hosts member tournaments, couples events, junior golf programs and is home to one of the largest Ladies Golf Associations in the state!
The Jackson Colonial Country Club par 72,6548 yard course was built in 1948 and has seen no major renovations other that reversing the nines back in 1964. In its 61 years of existence, Jackson has had a total of five Head Pros including Norman Bryant for 26 years and Ken Lindsay (Past President of the PGA and current Rules Official on the PGA tour) for 26 years. Hybrid Bermuda fairways are lined with mature cedars, pines and oaks to provide enough of a challenge for even the lowest handicapper.
The Jackson course is one of the few remaining courses to have no living quarters lining the fairways and it is not unusual to see native wildlife in their natural habitat .Bradford Pears, Crepe Myrtles, Chinese Tallows and of course, the Magnolias provide a spectacular show when in season.
