Walter Travis laid out the fairways at Ekwanok in 1900 when at the height of his playing powers. He returned 27 years later, shortly before he died, to construct the 18 holes at the neighboring Golf Club at Equinox.
Rees Jones had this to say about the course renovation that he carried out with lead architect Greg Muirhead in 1992:
“The Equinox Golf Course at this beautiful resort in the Green Mountains of Vermont was completely redesigned and rebuilt for a consortium headed by Guinness Enterprise Holdings, the parent company of Gleneagles in Scotland.
The historic property, which dates to 1769, is now known as The Equinox Golf Resort & Spa. The refurbishment of the vintage Walter Travis course greatly enhanced the drama and challenge of a classic New England layout tucked in a valley walled in by mountain ridges.”
