The course that Jack Nicklaus grew up playing
was a 1916 Donald Ross classic that hosted a U.S. Open,
a Ryder Cup and a PGA Championship.

In the early
1960s, Dick Wilson remodeled the layout, altering
bunker schemes and elevating the greens. In the
process, the course lost its distinctive Ross character.

Today, following a redesign by Columbus
native Michael Hurdzan (with Nicklaus as unpaid
collaborator), Scioto now plays like a Ross course again.

Tee boxes and bunkers were restored, drainage was
upgraded, and greens were rendered more “Rossian.”

Look for popular sentiment to return a Major to Scioto.
