The foremost club at the DuPont Country Clubis its title track, but the second 18 manages to hold a candle against the original Donald Ross design. This loop — titled “Nemours” after the neighboring DuPont family estate — was designed by Alfred Tull during 1937.

The two courses cannot be compared by challenge alone, as the Nemours and its 6,230 yards serve as a more relaxing contrast to the 7,100-plus yards of the DuPont course. A course of such yardage will offer many eagle opportunities for more talented members, considering the number of reachable par fours and short par fives.

Tull considered bigger hitters even then, such as at No. 5, where the green on the 305-yard dogleg is guarded by a centerline bunker complex. No. 11, a 480-yard par five, is challenging to reach based on the double-dogleg design of the hole and significant bunkering around the green.

If the yardages seem short for the first 17, even for a 6,230-yard course, the remaining 605 yards will appear on the closing hole, a towering par five that stands 115 yards longer than the next biggest hole at the course.
