John B. LaFoy describes GLENMORE‘s 18-hole par 72 Championship Golf Course as, “one of the country’s most unique courses with terrain that is both elevated and flat to give the golfer a sense of playing on a true Scottish course.”
“Every golfer, regardless of his or her ability, should feel exhilarated after a round of golf.”
LaFoy served as the Golf Course Architect for Glenmore’s famed course.
“Natural bunkers, terrain hazards, creeks, lakes, high native grasses, gently rolling knolls and fairway glens add to the authenticity of Glenmore’s planned Scottish landscape architecture,” he says.
LaFoy is a protégé of George W. Cobb, long considered one of America’s leading golf course architects. LaFoy himself has achieved a prestigious reputation as a prominent course architect with more than 75 noted courses to his credit, including the internationally famed Augusta National Golf Club, where he assisted in the rebuilding of many of its features.
“Many factors are involved in the design of a great course layout like Glenmore’s. Strategy of play, aesthetics and maintenance are of the utmost importance. Every golfer, regardless of his or her ability, should feel exhilarated after a round of golf. By working closely with nature and our environment, we can create individuality in each hole and a continuity of interest throughout the entire course.”
Glenmore Country Club’s Championship golf course stands as tribute to the expert design skills of golf course architect John B. LaFoy.
Those who have already played the golf course at Glenmore agree that its two nine-hole loops provide an intriguing variety of shots. Wide greens, tight fairways, elevated tees and ominous bunkers act to heighten the challenge.
The course at Glenmore promises unparalleled enjoyment for golfers of all skill levels, accommodating play from 5,100 to 6,900 yards.
