If someone would care to go to: http://www.golfclubatlas.com/forum/index.php/topic,51574.msg1179885.html#msg1179885they could lift the maps of Wilmslow Golf Club and include them in this thread. They were taken from the club's centenary book.
Mark,I have two questions for you. The Jimmie Austin routing, did you put the original routing overlay on that or is that on display at the course? I'm curious because I have a photo of the original routing that they had hanging in the proshop when I visited there several years ago. Chris, it is on display at the golf course.Also, on the Southern Hills routings, did you notice how the 7th looked much more like a slight dogleg originally and is now much more straight away? That green used to be further to the left and had a swale short of it. I think they moved the green due to drainage issues at some point, but I have not been able to pinpoint when. I thought I recalled reading that the green was once closer to the creek that runs down the right side of the hole. I didn't know that the green was once left of its current location, though it does look that way based on the two pictures. So the 7th green has been moved twice?Oh, one more, do you know what changes Heckenkamper made at Twin Hills? Other than 14 and 15, that course really didn't need much work in my opinion. I don't know specifically, but there were 72 changes listed -- no idea how significant (or not) they are.
