Host venue for the 1944 edition of the PGA Championship (won by Bob Hamilton over favorite Byron Nelson in the match play final), Manito Golf & Country Club boasts an A.V. Macan-designed 18-hole layout which features a large double island green in front of the clubhouse for the 9th and 18th holes.
John Harbottle produced a Master Plan for Manito Golf & Country Club in 2009 but sadly passed away in 2012, so Jeff Mingay was drafted in to conduct a review of Harbottle’s plans and subsequently oversee the remodeling of the 4th, 5th, and 6th holes.
“Manito is AV Macan’s third 18-hole design, following Royal Colwood in Victoria, British Colombia, and Inglewood near Seattle,” Mingay said. “The club is hopeful of completing a historically-inspired renovation of the entire golf course to celebrate its centennial in 2022.”
