Indianwood Golf & Country Club: Old

Lake Orion, MI Private

Overview

Crafted in the countryside north of Detroit by English golf professional Wilfred Reid and his partner William Connellan in the 1920s, Indianwood Old romps over a unique blend of landforms. Old is a good name for the course because it exudes the feel and characteristics of Golden Age design, namely deep bunkers that are littered strategically along the fescue-lined fairways and greens that exhibit enhanced slope and internal movements requiring precise iron shots. The course hosted the 1930 Western Open, the 1989 and 1994 US Women’s Open, and the 2012 US Senior Open. It's sister course, aptly named New, was designed by Jerry Pate and Bob Cupp in 1988.
