Alec “Nipper” Campbell designed the golf course of the Moraine Country Club and it opened for play in 1930. Campbell was raised at Troon and in 1899, aged nineteen, he emigrated from Scotland to take up the post of professional at The Country Club in Brookline. When his professional playing career came to an end, Campbell turned his hand to course design and after building Moraine, he became the Club Professional, a position he held for many years.

Host to the 1945 PGA Championship, which Byron Nelson won, Moraine received a Dick Wilson (Joe Lee) makeover in 1954. In 2015, Moraine was returned to Nipper's Scottish roots by Keith Foster. This major renovation included total greens reconstruction, fairway widening/regrassing and the reintroduction of long-lost bunkers, which were revealed from old photos and drawings.

Moraine’s par four 1st is one of the trickiest on the card despite its modest yardage. The green complex is shaped like an upturned saucer and if your approach shot ends above the hole you’ll do very well to make par. In fact, Moraine’s first three holes have challenging greens. Most first time visitors tend to drop more shots than they bargained for so early in their round.

Apart from its contoured greens, Moraine is a traditional, perhaps old-fashioned, parkland course that provides a fair and interesting challenge. Keep on the right line, master the greens and you might card a decent score.
