Jack Nicklaus routed The Club at Wynstone fairways around a substantial residential development at the end of the 1980s, wrapping many of the holes around Lake Sheree. The Golden Bear then returned in 2015 to renovate the layout, changing grass types on fairways and greens, as well as improving the drainage properties of the bunkers.

In The American Private Golf Club Guide, author Daniel Wexler has this to say about the course:

“Built over wooded, lake-filled terrain, Wynstone is one of the better Nicklaus designs of its period, though with water in play on at least 12 holes (often quite invasively), the less-skilled player may occasionally feel overmatched.

Wynstone is no longer ranked as loftily as it once was but it’s certainly still exciting, and generally viewed as one of the best twenty-five layouts in the state.”

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.
