    The Cascades course at Homestead Golf Review




    The golf course at Homestead Cascades is widely regarded as Americas best mountains layout, despite the fact the the course actually sits neatly in a valley which is surrounded on all sides by the lush wooded hills of the Allegheny mountains. However, thats not very important, the label I mean, the main lesson to be taken home is that the vast majority of golf players are agreeing with Sam Sneads definition of the place, i.e. the most complete golf course he knows of. The original design of the Cascades golf course wears the signature of William S Flynn and it dates back to 1923.

    The Cascades hosted the USGA six times, due to Flynns exceptional routing plan, which can be defined as the ultimate in terms of spirit of adventure and naturalness. This design had held up beautifully over decades, despite the fact that its holes are scarcely alpine in nature, as the course is actually sitting in a cradle, being protected by the dense woods all around it. There are quite a few elevation changes throughout the property, which are the salt and pepper of the Cascades, but whats most appealing about this place is the varied nature of the holes. The layout is unique, as in no 2 holes are alike, basically no cousins here so to speak, yet all eighteen of them fit perfectly together, making the Cascades clearly of a piece. Additionally to the Cascades, you can play another two brilliant golf courses at the Homestead, Robert Trent Jones Lower Cascades, built in 1963 and the delightful Old, wearing the signature of Donald Ross and Rees Jones (1913-1995).
