Hole No. 1: In the style of Old Tom Morris

Thomas Mitchell Morris, Sr., better known as "Old Tom Morris," was born in the "home of golf," St. Andrews, Scotland. Morris started his legacy in the golf industry as a legendary player, winning The Open Championship four times during his career. During his lifetime, he worked as a greenskeeper, clubmaker, ballmaker, golf instructor and finally, course designer.

Old Tom Morris is best known for his early version of St. Andrews, Carnoustie and Muirfield in Scotland. Our first hole reflects Morris' style of retaining existing natural features, such as a rock wall, as hazards. The green on a hill crest offers a beautiful panorama.
