The Golf Club is one of Pete Dye's lesser-known courses but it ranks as one of his greatest and most challenging. Straying from the parkland layouts that were prevalent in the area at the time the course was built, Dye incorporated a variety of grasses that give the course a more heathland feel. At nearly 7,300 yards, the layout is on the lengthier side. The golf course features tree-lined corridors that expand into ample fairways and the first noted use of Dye's signature railroad ties and pot bunkers. Dye was inspired by a trip to Scotland, which is apparent throughout the course. Some of the challenges golfers face are the acres of fescue and the prominent presence of the meandering Blacklick Creek on four holes. The layout is a formidable test for even the most skilled players.

Classic Pete Dye

1960s throwback, wonderful simplicity, intriguing use of set-back bunkers, railroad ties, an old English ha-ha and disorienting angles.
