Golden Horseshoe Gold Course




The Gold course is currently closed for a comprehensive renovation, under the direction of golf course architects Rees Jones and Greg Muirhead. Known as the “Open Doctor” for his expert renovations of many US Open courses, Rees Jones, son of Robert Trent Jones, Sr., is overseeing the 2016 renovation of his father’s original golf course design.

Course improvements include:

  • • All fairways, tees, roughs, and greens will be re-grassed with new grass varieties:
    Northbridge Bermuda grass, 419 Bermuda grass, 007 Bent grass
  • • The greens on holes 2, 6, 12, and 18 will be re-built to adjust slope
  • • All bunkers will be redesigned with the “Better Billy Bunker” technique
  • • New forward tees will be built on holes 3, 4, 6, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15 and 17
  • • “Drop areas” will be re-built on all four par three holes
  • • Extensive enhancements to landscaping, select cart paths, irrigation, and drainage

In addition to the Gold Course renovation, we are also adding the following to further improve your golf experience here at the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club:

  • • Short game practice area with chipping areas and practice bunker
  • • Expansion of practice putting green, doubling the existing play area
  • • Improvements to the driving range fairway, including regrading and target greens

The Golden Horseshoe is also pleased to have Billy Fuller as part of the renovation team.  Mr. Fuller was the Superintendent at Augusta National in Georgia, and developed the “Better Billy Bunker” construction technique to improve the drainage, look, and playability of bunkers.
