Mexico Open at Vidanta

Vidanta Vallarta



Brooklawn Country Club

Fairfield, CT Private

Overview

Brooklawn Country Club was built in 1895 with just $100 set aside for a nine-hole golf course. Just a year later the course was one of 26 to join the newly formed USGA. In addition Tom Morris, grandson of Old Tom Morris, was the first professional at Brooklawn and the course has a history of hosting some of the USGA’s finest events. The course was one of the last of A.W. Tillinghast’s career, and it has been renovated more recently by Ron Forse. The greens are full of undulation, a stalwart of Tillinghast's designs, and the putting surface at the long par-4 fourth is one of his best in an area filled with his brilliance. Holes like the third and sixth are uphill without feeling like a hike, showcasing Tillinghast’s ability to work with a challenging site.
