The Golf Club
The Golf Club has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. and the World by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.
Set in the countryside outside Columbus, Ohio, this course has a wide variety of holes. Many on the first nine are tight and tree-lined, while several on the back nine are more open, almost links style.
Nearly all the greens are heavily undulated and kept very fast and half the holes on the course feature some type of water hazard.
The most interesting hole on the course is the par-4 13th, where designer Pete Dye created a marsh that players must hug with their tee shot down the left side if they want to have the ideal angle from which to attack the green. Going down the right means that a player must hit a mid-iron approach over a deep greenside bunker and make the ball stop fast or risk rolling into a pond behind the green.Design - Golf Course at Golf Club, The
