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.

Reviews for DuPont (DuPont)

Av. Reviewers Score:
Description: There are three golf courses at DuPont Country Club but the jewel in the crown is the DuPont layout which was resurrected by Lester George in 2005. Rating: 5 out of 6 Reviews: 1

The renovation by Lester George in 2005 made this course a Top 100 calibre golf course. It is overshadowed by its very close neighbours Wilmington CC and Biderman. Pros and amateurs alike raved about the course in the US Open Local Qualifier, where DuPont had one of the highest qualifying scores in the country. The bunkering is done in the spirit of Tillinghast and the greens are bold in their contours and challenge.
