Genesis Scottish Open

The Renaissance Club



Hillcrest Country Club

Bartlesville, OK Private

Overview

According to writer and historian Chris Clouser, Perry Maxwell got the commission to design Hillcrest in northeastern Oklahoma in 1926 by underbidding A.W. Tillinghast and Walter Travis, the club's first choices. It can be considered the final course of his early period before he began working nationally and teaming with Alister MacKenzie. Like all Maxwell designs, the routing tackles the slopes of the property from every angle, presenting players his uphil, downhill and cross-slope stances. The course--considered a hidden gem by Maxwell enthusiasts--is full of other tells from the archtiect, including wild internal putting contours, constant doglegs, a calm lay-of-the-land presentation and frequent to-and-fro forays to the clubhouse.
