The Golf Club at Berkeley Hall offers three world-class — and quite unique — touchpoints for comparison in its approach: Winged Foot, Seminole, and Riviera. Well then! Tom Fazio must have felt some incredible pressure when constructing two 18-hole loops for the project, the North and the South.
Fazio had been working on the North Course and South simultaneously and would eventually open the latter a year after the celebrated North course opened. The newer 18 offered a rather distinct take on lowcountry golf, with tighter fairways and a routing through the forest where the North features a more open concept.
Although finding the fairways won’t be a terrible challenge for players, finding the correct portion of fairway will be the difference between red and black numbers on the scorecard. Fazio employs dramatic greens that will offer those with the best approach angle the best chance for a one-putt as well.
