Host to the PGA Championship in 1952, the course at Big Spring Country Club has been altered a number of times down the years by the likes of William Diddel, Larry Packard, Arthur Hills and, most recently, Rees Jones in 2004.
The club merged with Harmony Landing Country Club, located half an hour’s drive to the north, in 2014, offering the combined membership the choice of two 18-hole layouts, fourteen tennis courts and two Junior Olympic-sized swimming pools.
fairways are routed around the MIddle Fork of Beargrass Creek, with several holes
affected by the flowing waters of this natural water hazard. The
new millennium remodel of the layout by Rees Jones – which involved
rebuilding greens and adding fairway bunkers – now provides players
with a tougher test.
