Did you know?

A traditional parkland style golf course, lined with evergreens and oaks, had originally been planned for this site. However, this all changed in the winter of 1996 when lead designer Dana Fry discovered a significant layer of sand while trees were being cleared to create the fairways. Fry helped to revise the original concept. The resulting Sand Barrens course is one characterised by dramatic bunkers, fairway hugging sandy waste areas and significantly undulating greens.

Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
