Tom Doak to design resort’s fourth course
Sand Valley Golf Resort in Nekoosa, Wisconsin, has hired golf course architect Tom Doak to design a fourth course at the resort.
The new course will be located next to the back nine of the original Sand Valley layout and will be routed within a restored sedge savannah. Doak's routing measures 6,100 yards with a par of 68.
“It’s a concept I have wanted to pursue for years – to build a great par 68 course for America like England has so many of,” said Doak in an interview with The Fried Egg. “Courses like Swinley Forest, Rye, West Sussex, Cavendish and St. Enodoc are some of my favourite places in golf, and it's a shame there is nothing like them over here."
