World-renowned as masters of the modern-day minimalist golf course design, Bill Coore and two-time Masters Champion Ben Crenshaw, have been responsible for the vision and design of some of the premier golf courses in the US and beyond over the course of their 30-year career including Streamsong Resort, Sand Hills, Bandon Trails, the modern restoration of Pinehurst #2 and much more.
The duo draws their inspiration from the “Golden Age of Course Design,”, an era defined by Donald Ross, Alister Mackenzie, A.W Tillinghast and others who sought to create a golf experience that rewards a highly strategic approach to the game.
Drawing from the natural beauty of Lake Oconee, Coore and Crenshaw created some of their finest work at Cuscowilla. The golf course was designed with minimal disturbance to native grass and growth, and the layout seamlessly integrates holes with lake-front views, vast areas of native Bluestem grass, and towering Georgia pines to offer a truly special round each time you play the course.
