H.S. Colt, 1929

Modern architecture did itself no favors by pursuing holes that constantly scream at the golfer, because at some point the golfer goes tone deaf. Colt never went down that path and thus his courses enjoy timeless appeal. Here, he did what he did best: produce a course that is a delight to play every day. De Pan may not have the topography of St. George’s Hill but it does have sand dunes throughout the property. A master router, Colt incorporated the dunes in every way possible. (Photo: De Pan)
