Genesis Scottish Open

The Renaissance Club



Hamilton Farm Golf Club (Highlands)

Gladstone, NJ Private

Overview

Dana Fry designed and built this course in 2001 with then partner Dr. Michael Hurdzan and in 2022 came back to do a renovation with current partner Jason Straka. The original design featured elaborate MacKenzie-inspired cape-and-bay bunkers, now replaced by what might be considered a more traditional, or New England, style of shaping with less formality. Their placements have also been adjusted, as have tees, while some fairways were re-graded and hundreds of trees were removed to better show off the 730-acre estate’s surrounding pastures and woods.
