Sycamore Hills Golf Club officially opened for play in 1989, when the designer, Jack Nicklaus marked the occasional with an inaugural round. It’s billed as perhaps the finest golf club in the Midwest and there is no doubt that the former estate of the Fort Wayne provides near perfect golfing terrain.
The Sycamore Hills site undulates gently with the narrow Aboite River having been used to great effect. Mature sycamore, oak and fir trees frame many holes. With generous fairways you’d expect to score well, but with peninsula green sites and plenty of trademark Nicklaus traps set alongside natural waste bunkers, Sycamore Hills is a course on which scoring well largely depends on accurate approach play.
In the opinion of Jack Nicklaus: “Sycamore Hills is one of the finest sites we've ever had the opportunity on which to design a golf course… It has gorgeous trees, great movement of property, and it had some existing lakes that really functioned quite well. The site had a little river moving though the property which really afforded a lot of opportunities to create different shots.”

Jack Nicklaus will forever be associated with greatness on the golf course, but it’s his design work that should also be remembered in equal measure to his magnificent competitive achievements on the links.
