Charles Schwab Challenge

Colonial Country Club



Wilmington Country Club: South

Wilmington, DE Private

Overview

The Robert Trent Jones Sr.-designed South Course is routed among the rolling terrain of northern Delaware and provides some really good vistas of large sections of the golf course. The routing takes advantage of the terrain to produce a course with strong layout design and a variety of holes that include thoughtful short par 4s such as the 11th, challenging longer par 4s such as No. 5 and a beautiful mix of par 3s. Recent tree removal plus some tornado damage have opened up the course even more, and some bunkers were added at the corner of doglegs in an attempt to restore some shot options back to a few holes ahead of the 2022 BMW Championship, the first time the PGA Tour will host an event in Delaware.
