Trinity Forest Golf Club resembles many of the great old courses of the Northeast and Great Britain, featuring a links style course on a rolling meadow with tall native grasses and dramatic bunkering and green complexes.
The team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw – Coore & Crenshaw, Inc. – designed both the championship golf course and the nine-hole “Horse Course”. The design of Trinity Forest honors classic golf courses with traditional, strategic golf and great artistry as the guiding philosophy.
To quote our golf course designer Bill Coore, “Good players hate uncertainty. Ben and I strive for uncertainty.” And he says that with a smile on his face. Of course he’s referring to his design partner Ben Crenshaw and their philosophy that requires the golfer to think his way around the golf course.
To illustrate a few of those elements, we asked US Open Champion, and noted course designer himself, Geoff Ogilvy, to show us a few of the nuances of Trinity Forest and how embracing the strategy can add fun to the round and help you shoot lower scores. Geoff is well-respected and thoughtful, he’s an admirer of Coore and Crenshaw designs and he is a student of classic golf course architecture.
