Sustained and dedicated effort has gone into making this quintessential country club course great. On ordinary terrain landlocked by affluent suburb, it’s been a work in progress under the supervision of architect Michael Hurdzan for the better part of two decades. After all the routing adjustments, new tees, expanded greens, addition of fescue and improved drainage, the result is a championship course that has recently and ably hosted several of the area’s premier amateur and professional tournaments. There’s length where there wasn’t before, varied green complexes with collection areas that boost daily variety, and a reputation for constant top-shelf conditions. –Max Adler
