The Rawls Course at Texas Tech

Lubbock, TX Public

Overview

This was Tom Doak's first project after completing Pacfiic Dunes at Bandon Dunes Resort. The Red Raider course was created from a flat, rectangular cotton field, but Doak's team transformed the land by moving 1.3 million yards of topsoil to create a stunning setting with incredible movement and natural-looking features. The result is a surprising amount of elevation changes for West Texas with wide fairways, factoring in the often-present wind, but deep bunkers and complicated green complexes, providing a challenge to better players while being playable for all levels.
