Looking back at his career, Dick Nugent was largely a regional architect, doing much of his work within driving distance of Chicago. The University of Illinois graduate designed or remodeled more than 60 courses in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin alone.

But Nugent has impacted golf far beyond the borders of the Midwest. He leaves behind a diverse legacy of courses - from one of golf's best nine-holers to maybe the hardest course on the planet, along with a major championship venue and a former long-time PGA Tour site.

Past American Society of Golf Course Architects President Bob Lohmann, who got his start in architecture under Nugent, recalls his former boss as a great man who "worked hard and played hard."
