BLUFF NINE

The Golden Bear’s acumen for creating iconic courses almost rivals his uncanny ability to win. Nicklaus’ 23 years between his first and last of six green jackets demonstrates an ability to adapt and compete that no golfer may ever duplicate. Evident in his approach to course design, he uses the natural tendencies of the land to amplify both its risks and rewards.

Jack Nicklaus

“This is a nice, rolling piece of property with mature pines throughout. Very little dirt has been moved, which means the course fits nicely with the existing terrain and its surroundings. This is the kind of site that provides you the opportunity to design a golf course that on opening day will appear as if it’s been there for 50 years. There is a great deal of variety in the routing, with this nine featuring uphill and downhill shots, as well as a balance of right-to-left and left-to-right holes.”
