I just love a Seth Raynor design and Blue Mound is no exception. One of the unique things they do at Blue Mound is name every temple hole on the bench resting on the tee box, I liked the added sense of history this touch brought. The golf course was phenomenal with Raynor’s green complexes the stars. My favorite green was the punchbowl 8th although I also liked the par three 7th featuring an elevated tee with a great view of Marquette. Blue Mound also shows the variances in Raynor’s Biarritz green designs showcasing one not completely integrated in the putting surface but challenging players who end up short of the green.
