As it was the Ralph Plummer-designed course where Jack Nicklaus won his first PGA Championship in 1963, it was only fitting that Dallas Athletic Club should call the Golden Bear back to redesign the Blue layout in the mid-1980s.

“The Blue retains a fair amount of Plummer’s work,” comments Daniel Wexler in The American Private Golf Club Guide, “with various strokes of Jack’s modernistic dash added, such as the water hazard (and waterfall) that fronts the 5th green, a 428-yard dogleg right and one of the layouts stronger tests. Things peak in the course’s mid section, led by the 324-yard 8th (played through a narrow gauntlet of fairway bunkers), the water-guarded 388-yard 9th, the 510-yard lake-fronted 10th, and the 371-yard 11th, where a second waterfall punctuates another Nicklaus pond.”
