    The Golf Club Course Review




    Despite having the most simple and peculiar name, the Golf Club has a design which is nothing short of revolutionary, being the brainchild of famous architect Pete Dye, who unveiled this true masterpiece back in 1967. Truth be told, the golf course at the Golf Club is a hugely under rated resort and a lesser known gem of Pete Dyes. The architect was instructed by the clubs owner (Fred Jones) who was a former insurance salesman to build a golf course which feels timeless, i.e. like it was there forever as soon as its finished.

    Pete Dye complied with the clubs owned request and he designed a Golf Club as the complete opposite of the tree lined-manicured-bland parkland designs of the day and instead he went all in for a bold look which reminds of Englands famous heathland courses, using a variety of grasses and fescues in the rough. Also, the golf course has generous fairways emphasized by waving fields of native vegetation and beautiful tree lined corridors, together with Pete Dyes dramatic use of hazards throughout the property which are aimed to dictate the strategy, define holes and create angles. Also, this is the first time Pete Dye used its trademark pot bunkers and railroad ties which are inspired from Scottish courses. The main challenges at the The Golf Club are represented by its large bunkers and the acres of fescue, along with the particularly tough one shotters.
