EXMOOR COUNTRY CLUB
Ross crafted a course that requires golfers to gauge the ideal playing angles off the tee and to assess the risk-or-reward of each stroke. Players learn quickly to be alert to the changing winds off Lake Michigan, one mile to the east, which may shift directions, two or three times during a round. Golfers of all skill levels feel comfortable, yet tested, with six tee options, playing from 5,400 yards to 7,149 yards in length.
In 2003, Golf course architect Ron Prichard completed a comprehensive course restoration, and recently regrassed the greens with Pure Distinction bent grass, redefined green pads, and added new grass approaches to all greens.
Those who play the Exmoor course today will experience what golf enthusiasts 100 years ago called “an atmosphere” of Old-World style, of visually interesting holes, a mix of short par fours and uphill ones that seem like par fives, of lakes and long grasses, of holes that require creative shotmaking, and a course routing with a natural flow over both wooded and open terrain. For more than a century, members and guests at Exmoor have enjoyed a comprehensible test of golf — one that pits the player, a club and a ball against the gravity, the land and the wind.
With his original layout so evident today — and with so many identifiable features attributed to him — the Exmoor course continues in its second century, as an authentic Donald Ross masterpiece.
Exmoor Country Club successfully hosted the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship, one of the Seniors’ Majors, in July of this year. The Championship was a great success and brought a renewed focus of the golf world to this great golf course and Club. In the end, Vijay Singh, winner of The Masters and two PGA Championships defeated Jeff Maggert in a playoff to secure the victory at the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship.
