The original course was built in 1971 by architect Robert Trent Jones Senior. Born June 20, 1906, Jones designed (or redesigned) about 500 golf courses worldwide. It was said jokingly: “The sun never sets on a Robert Trent Jones golf course”.


The courses designed by Jones are famous for landscape art, the innovative use of bunkers, the widespread use of water hazards and the skilful arrangement of greens and obstacles to encourage careful game strategy. In his view golf had to be without risks: a sport without rewards: his design encourages bold play.


In recent years the course has been extended by a further 18 holes whose design was entrusted to Michael Hurdzan.


Hurdzan is internationally recognized as an authority in the development of golf courses. He was the president of the American Association of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA), he studied turf management at the University of Ohio, obtained a master’s degree in landscape architecture and a doctorate in physiology of landscape plants.


In 1996 he was awarded the title of architect of the year by Golf World Magazine




The best region in the world in 2019 for Lonely Planet

This landlocked northwestern corner of Italy – former Savoy stronghold, crucible of Italian nationhood and 20th-century industrial powerhouse – is adept at playing to its strengths but not always so good at selling its considerable charms to visitors. However, with Turin’s contemporary-arts and electronic-music scenes flourishing, a very special self-portrait of Leonardo da Vinci squirrelled away in the city’s Biblioteca Reale, sublimely remote Alpine walking trails and a clutch of exquisitely bucolic villages and valleys offering up arguably Italy’s best reds (wine) and whites (truffles), it might not be just the savvy, arty, foodie traveller’s secret for much longer.
