Seth Raynor Designs

5 posts in this topic

Hello, I am new to the forum but have a little exposure to great golf course architecture. I have done some research on Seth Raynor and am curious which Seth Raynor courses anyone has played and their overall thoughts of them.

Nearly every Raynor course is private so I doubt many have been able to sample his work.

Played Country Club of Fairfield several times in the Southport section of Fairfield, Connecticut. Built on former onion farms near Long Island Sound, with one hole playing along the sound. Mostly flat and wide open, using the shore grasses and holding ponds in the area. Not long, but interesting and a treat to play. Several years ago they removed nearly every tree, and now it looks very links-like with the wind often in play. Not a lot of traps, but they certainly come into play. Exclusive country club in a very affluent area of town. Private, of course!

Why limit the discussion to Raynor, rather than discuss the trio of Macdonald, Raynor and Banks?

I've played the following Raynor designs:

Creek Club
Fishers Island
Mountain Lake
Southampton
Yale

What would you like to know?

Somerset Country Club in St. Paul Minnesota. One of my favorite courses anywhere. Somerset has both Redan (#4) and Biarritz (#12) design par 3's. Awesome course!
