Perry Maxwell, 1936

Site of three U.S. Opens and a quartet of PGA Championships, this Depression-era Perry Maxwell design features holes that gracefully flow across a plot of undulating ground perfectly suited for golf. For decades, the land was smothered underneath a canopy of trees but Keith Foster and then Gil Hanse have opened up the property for all to admire. Gone too are the clean edged bunkers that never looked at home on a Maxwell design. Raves all around for how this course now looks and plays. (Photo: Getty Images)
