The Vintage COURSE

The Course7,363 Yards / Par 72

The Vintage is patterned after the classic courses built at the turn of the century. On one hand, there is a distinct natural feel to the layout with holes carefully routed on existing terrain leaving the heavily wooded site as undisturbed as possible. At the same time, much of the feature work utilizes odd, sometimes geometric shapes and quirky features that are distinctively old. Revered courses such as the National Golf Links, Fishers Island, Maidstone, Chicago Golf Club, and Garden City served as inspiration for creating a course that gives a distinct nod to the days of old. The natural terrain is frequently contrasted by striking, abrupt mounds, deep pots, square edges, ridges, blind shots, long and thin bunkers near both small and huge greens with wicker basket pins. These features resemble the hand-work of the past and provide a welcome relief from the many cookie-cutter modern courses that dominate golf today. The course plays over some 250 acres with plenty of elbow room and heavy vegetation creating a core golf feeling that is easily walked.
