This is Cobb Mountain Golf that offers a moderate 9 hole golf course, sheltered among a forest of massive pine trees in a beautiful and very tranquil country setting. This golf course has recently come under new ownership when it was purchased by local residents Phil and Marci Psalmonds who have lived in the Lake County area for over twenty years. Phil is a seasoned golfer and an avid sports fan while his wife is new to the game but is currently taking lessons so she can also enjoy everything the course has to offer.
