Host venue for the 1916 U.S. Women’s Amateur championship, the Donald Ross-designed course at Belmont Country Club has been modified and upgraded a number of times down the years, most recently by Craig Schreiner in 2005.

Craig Schreiner sent us the following details on the performed renovation work:

“All greens were rebuilt to USGA standards and enlarged to regain older pin locations that had been lost due to routine maintenance operations. All bunkers were renovated, strategically positioned and some original features were restored. New tees were added to accommodate different levels of skill. Ponds were enlarged to facilitate drainage, improve flood control, enhance wildlife habitat and add irrigation water storage.

Tree removal was key to improving solar exposure and a new tree program was initiated to augment the major vegetation by removing non indigenous varieties in favor of more long-lasting compatible trees. The short game area was remodeled and the range had new target greens raised for visibility.

Old Donald Ross plans and aerial photos were used to verify green shapes and original holes.”

Belmont is a very strong course. It features much more width than some other Donald Ross courses in the region, which makes it playable for higher handicap players and very strategic for Lower handicap players. It has very challenging, subtle greens, with many double breaks, sneaky spines, and runoffs that add to the challenge. Definitely a course where it is tough to go low, but where you are unlikely to feel completely beat up. Conditioning is excellent, and there has been an effort in recent years to increase the firmness of the course and greens when the weather cooperates.
