Winged Foot - East Course - Mamaroneck, New York
If the East Course at Winged Foot plays little brother to the West Course, its definitely the sort of little brother that beats you up 1 out of 3 times. Both courses at Winged Foot are credited to AW Tillnghast and it is the only private club in America with 2 courses on Golf Digest's 100 Greatest Ranking. Originally designed by Tilinghast in 1923, it was renovated by Tom Fazio in 2003 and Gil Hanse in 2012. Using computer generated modeling of Tilinghast's original greens and bunkers, Hanse was able to restore them to precise specifications.
Only 7 men have held the position as Head Professional at Winged Foot in it's 93 year history. 2 of those head pros have actually won major championships, Claude Harmon (1948 Masters) and Craig Wood (1941 Masters and US Open). Winged Foot is indeed an icon of stability in the game of golf.
