Interlachen has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.

This prestigious course features a traditional design in the Donald Ross style. Ross redesigned the course in 1919. The terrain is rolling, and lakes come into play on six holes. The fairways are wide, and the small greens are fast. There are numerous old trees on the course. This club is famous for being the site of the 1930 U.S. Open, the last major tournament during the year Bobby Jones won the Grand Slam.

The signature hole is #9, a 520-yard par 5, featuring a dogleg right fairway and a lake on the inside curve near the green. During the 1930 U.S. Open, Bobby Jones skipped his ball over the lake and made the famous birdie that would assure his Grand Slam.

In his article My Fab 5, GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teacher Laird Small wrote that Interlachen is one of his favorite courses in the United States. Here's what he wrote:

"I love the fact that all the par 5s on the course are reachable -- and for big hitters, an iron is all that's required on the second shot -- but you must put the ball in the ideal area on the greens because they are so undulating."
