27 Holes With Three Different Designers
« on: March 16, 2023, 10:04:07 AM »
As a lifelong Connecticut resident I’ve been following the 1934 Connecticut Aerials thread which now has Tumblebrook CC as its most recent entry. Each nine has a different designer with Willie Park Jr., Orrin Smith and George Fazio each getting credit in that order. Any other examples out there of 27 or even 36 holes with a different designer for each nine?

World Golf Hall of Fame has two 18 hole courses with three architects:
King & Bear
King & Bear, named for its co-designers and fellow Hall of Famers Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, is the first and only 18-hole design collaboration between two of golf’s most respected and well-known ambassadors.
Slammer & Squire
Hall of Fame members Sam “The Slammer” Snead and Gene “The Squire” Sarazen served as consultants to course architect Bobby Weed for Slammer & Squire, which offers captivating views of the World Golf Hall of Fame from several holes on the front and back nine.

Believe Geneva National in Lake Geneva, WI is Nicklaus, Palmer, and Player. Might be 18-18-18 though.

Tim, when Cobb's Creek re-opens it will have:


1.  The original Old course by Hugh Wilson and friends and Hanse Golf Design


2.  A new 'Karakung' 9 holes by Hanse Golf Design


3.  A 9-hole short course by El Tigre.

It’s Norman Woods.


I have the copy of Thomas’s “Golf Course Architecture in America” that he originally owned. Weird eh.
Change is good.
