Dana Fry, 2018

Ever see a square green? It’s a rare but cool architectural quirk that Dana Fry introduces on the 1st hole on the newbie South course and repeats numerous times throughout; other defining features include narrow cross-bunkers and spacious fairways on an essentially treeless site. It’s a bit like stepping back in time even though the course debuted just three years ago. You’ll be helped and hurt by breezes blowing off Lake Michigan just to the west, with firm and fast conditions emphasizing the ground game. The longest par-4 (the 491-yard 4th) is also the toughest despite heading downhill. On the two par-3s (the 5th and 12th), long is better than short, or else your ball will trundle backward off steep false fronts. Enjoy the panoramic view from the 15th tee. Max fee: $220 (Photo: Patrick Koenig)
