Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed the original 18 holes at Otter Creek, which is now the North and West nines. The course has equally heavy doses of trees and bunkers, which paired with the meandering creeks make this a demanding test. The challenging layout hosted the 1991 U.S. Amateur Public Links, which was played on the North and West nines. Robert Trent Jones’ son, Rees Jones, designed an additional nine holes—the East course—in 1995, rounding out this now 27-hole facility.
