Dusenberry Design is working with classic architecture expert, historian, and author; Dr. Bradley Klein on the restoration of this 1928 Donald Ross designed private golf course. The intent is to embrace the classic design character of one of Donald Ross’ most distinctive works. The original routing of the course remains intact and all planning protects the original design intent.
The master plan embraces the unique landforms – everything from ideal rolling terrain, exposed rock, stands of native grass, and mature hardwoods. The plan also simplifies the lines of play, with mowing patterns into greens that are more linear and more expressive of the existing landforms. The plan also creates a bunker style that is more scatter-shot in its placement a la Ross, while providing risk/reward options for those who challenge these bunkers. At the same time, these bunkers are pulled closer into the intended line of play so that their strategic purpose is more evident and appealing. The master plan is being executed in phases to limit disruption to members and spread out capital costs.
