Renovations/Restorations

  • Black Butte Ranch-Glaze Meadow GC | Sisters, Oregon

    Following a complete renovation in 2010 and 2011 the new Glaze Meadow course at this vacation and golf destination in Central Oregon has been scheduled to reopen in the spring of 2012. Once measuring a mere 6,574 yards from the championship tees, the renovated course has been lengthened to just over 7,000 yards.

  • Dallas Country Club | Dallas, Texas

    This historic club, founded in 1896, and originally designed by Tom Bendelow had seen a number of different architects leave their mark on the course including A.W.Tillinghast.  Following the completion of a six month renovation the course has once again been restored to a more classical design motif reminiscent of courses from the "Golden Age" era of design. 

  • Pine Needles | Southern Pines, North Carolina

    In returning Pine Needles to its playing personality of more than 75 years ago, John Fought Design dramatically re-established this original Donald Ross design to its celebrated reputation. Careful planning and construction were required to restore this classic course, host to the 2007 U.S. Women’s Open and a top 10 “Best New Remodel” for 2005 (Golf Digest).

  • Wayzata Country Club | Wayzata, Minnesota

    John Fought Design was hired to renovate the Wayzata course that opened in 1957. In addition, members wanted to expand their practice area to include six short practice holes and a new double-ended driving range. The improvements have created a classic look that re-establishes the club as one of the best in the state.

  • The Country Club of Jackson | Jackson, Mississippi

    After enduring several renovation projects over the years, the members decided to reconstruct the 18 of its 27 holes in a much more classic motif, with an improved infrastructure. The John Fought Design renovation of the Dogwood and Azalea nine-hole courses, plus enhanced practice facility, has helped allow the Club to regain its stature in the state.

  • Rosedale Golf Club | Toronto, Ontario, Canada

    At least five different architects markedly altered this original Donald Ross design from the 1920s to reflect a more modern style. John Fought Design was enlisted to re-establish the Ross features. The new bunkering, tee boxes and several new greens complexes have re-invigorated the 6,525-yard, par 71 course, which is located near the heart of Toronto.

  • Sunriver Resort - The Meadows | Sunriver, Oregon

    The $3.5-million redesign called for all new greens, new and replaced bunkers, wider fairways and, in some cases, completely new holes. While most of the holes on the Meadows Course have a welcoming spaciousness to them, there are still challenging narrow holes preserved from the original design, one of three courses at Sunriver Resort.

  • The Farms at Rancho Santa Fe | Rancho Santa Fe, California

    Dramatic elevation changes throughout this redesigned course call for brilliant strategy and aesthetic prowess. Water hazards come into play on a number of holes, while the medium-sized greens are fast and extremely well manicured and the fairways are narrow. The signature hole at The Farms is No. 3, a 530-yard par 5.

  • Riverside Country Club | Provo, Utah

    Riverside Country Club is home to the Brigham Young University golf team and has some of the most beautiful mountain views of any course located in the mountain west. With aging infrastructure, John Fought Design removed excess tree cover, rebuilt all tees and bunkers. The elements have been a major improvement to the course strategic playing values.

  • Phoenix Country Club | Phoenix, Arizona

    When this redesign was completed, the course had been restored to its classic, historical past with improvements allowing it to stand up to today’s technological advances. Beautifully developed bunkers in the Tillinghast mold and slightly elevated greens with soft breaks were prime redesign features. Overgrown trees were thinned and the holes were widened to their original width. Renovated with Tom Lehman.

  • Alpine Country Club | Highland, Utah

    Alpine Country Club is located near the Wasatch mountain range that affords spectacular views for every hole on the course. With a road expansion impacting three holes on the back nine, John Fought Design developed a plan to rebuild the three holes that would be impacted in a new classic motif. It also completed a comprehensive master improvement plan to be implemented in the future.

  • The Legacy Golf Club | Henderson, Nevada

    As with many of the golf courses in the Las Vegas area, water is a major issue. With the golf course changing water sources, it became necessary to change the grass on the existing putting surfaces. All of the greens were slightly adjusted and convert to a more water friendly bermuda grass.

  • Ironwood Country Club | Palm Desert, California

    At the heart of the Coachella Valley, the 36-hole facility at Ironwood Country Club has undergone several improvement projects over the past 10 years. Several holes required major re-design by John Fought Design as new development has encroached on the golf holes.

  • DC Ranch – Members Course | Scottsdale, Arizona

    The original greens construction had failed requiring all 18 greens to be re-designed and re-constructed by John Fought Design. Along with the new greens, Fought also re-designed all of the bunkers changing the motif to a classic sand face design that are strategically placed. A lot of unnecessary tree cover was eliminated while the renovation process was undertaken. Renovated with Tom Lehman.

  • Angel Park Golf Club | Las Vegas, Nevada

    Over the years, the 36-hole facility required changes to keep it current. Along with the adjustments to the existing holes, a unique 12-hole par three course was constructed near the clubhouse facility. All of the holes were modeled after famous par threes from around the world, significantly adding to the popularity of this public facility. Renovated with Bob Cupp.

  • Teton Pines Golf & Country Club | Jackson Hole, Wyoming

    Located in historic Jackson Hole, Teton Pines has some of the most spectacular mountain views of any golf course in America. As the golf course was beginning to show its age, some modest adjustments were undertaken to modernize several golf holes.
