Originally designed by Robert Trent Jones, both courses underwent drastic restructuring renovations in 1989 under the direction of a new course architect Bobby Weed. Both Courses now require strategic shot placement and clear-cut calculations – especially when you’re dealing with any one of the numerous sand hazards.
