The 73-year-old course was originally designed by world renowned architect Alister MacKenzie. In 2001, the city put $6.5 million into renovations, improving irrigation and rebuilding the 18th and 9th greens to fit the original Alister MacKenzie design.
Unlike other courses, there are no houses, buildings, or other reminders of the outside world once the player is on the MacKenzie course.
