Once again, a huge thank you to Golf Course Trades, Tedesco Country Club, and Ron Forse. It’s easy to write a great story when you have a terrific subject. Click here for the entire piece.
From the article:
“By the time you crest the hill on 16 over which you’ve hit you’ve already been enchanted by the course’s wondrous variety – uphill, downhill, draw, fade, water, wetlands, woods – but once the majesty of the 16th green complex unveils itself before your eyes, you might never want to descend back to the real world. A long iron approach plays dramatically downhill to a green surrounded by geometric bunkers and framed by ancient granite boulders.
“I could play this little circuit of 12-16 over and over again for days,” said a thoroughly mesmerized Mike Mosely as his approach shot bounced off the granite rocks well to the right of the green. “I don’t even care what I shoot, this course is so cool.” (It was 106, but who’s counting…)
The other hole that belongs in any discussion of the greatest in the country is the glorious par-4 second. In an unusual bit of routing, the course returns to the clubhouse at the second hole as well as the ninth and 18th. The clubhouse sits atop a rocky cave, a grotto which actually houses the entire second green.
