Golf Course Design Awards

Jack Nicklaus' name is a perennial mainstay in every annual golf course rating. From the time he and Pete Dye joined design minds to bring us Harbour Town Golf Links in 1970, to the unveiling of Muirfield Village Golf Club in 1974, Nicklaus has been a driving force in golf course design.
