Overview

Aronimink is an object lesson in architectural evolution. After Donald Ross completed his design in 1928, he proclaimed, “I intended to make this my masterpiece.” That didn’t keep club members from bringing in William Gordon in the 1950s to eliminate out-of-play fairway bunkers and move other bunkers closer to greens. The course was later revamped by Dick Wilson, George Fazio and Robert Trent Jones. It took seven years for Ron Prichard, a designer specializing in course restoration, to rebuild the course into something close to the original Ross design as evidenced by old aerial photos. But more recently, the club had architect Gil Hanse, who resides nearby, restore the course once again, more in keeping with Ross’ original blueprints.
