Overview

Back in 1979, George Fazio and nephew Tom were roundly criticized by Donald Ross fans for removing a classic Ross par 4 on Oak Hill East and replacing it with two new holes, including the bowl-shaped par-3 sixth, which would later become the scene of four aces in two hours during the second round of the 1989 U.S. Open. They also built a pond on another par 3 and relocated the green on the par-4 18th. The club hired golf architect Andrew Green to remodel those holes to bring them more in line with Donald Ross’ original style. Green has since re-established the original Ross hole (pictured here). Reconstruction occurred after the 2019 Senior PGA Championship on the East Course and was completed in May 2020—ahead of the 2023 PGA Championship.
