One of three 18-hole layouts at the DuPont Country Club, the DuPont course was originally designed by Alfred Tull in 1949 and it played host to the LPGA Championships from 1994 to 2004 when Laura Davies, Julie Inkster, Se Ri Pak and Annika Sorenstam each won the event twice.
Virginian architect Lester George was called in to remodel the layout in 2005 and it has since been used for the Delaware State Championships as well as regional qualifying for the US Open and US Amateur.
The 460-yard 15th is considered the signature hole on the DuPont course. A creek called “Husbands Run” flanks the right side of the hole on this par four before cutting across the fairway in front of a heavily contoured green.
