Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw (2004)

The Old Sandwich Golf Club is perhaps the most clever design of Coore-Crenshaw ever built. In the midst of its pines, oaks, bunkers, chocolate mounds, wavy fescue and heather shrubs evoke Baltusrol, the National Golf Courses, Pine Valley, Pinehurst No 2 and the Chicago Golf Club. The greens are among the most rolling of all Coore & Crenshaw models. They are sown with half a dozen curved varieties to give them an old-fashioned look. No one is better at old than Coore & Crenshaw.

"The contours of fairways and greens at Old Sandwich are slightly wavy and create multiple and interesting shooting options, similar to a heathland course in England."

"Another Crenshaw-Coore masterpiece, carved from pines and sand, on the way to Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Typically, they created a fantastic layout. Wide variety of holes and use of bunkers to guide the eyes and the strategy. "

"One of the longest and most unique steps to the first tee is a beautiful walk on a stone bridge and a pond (which is actually the only water on the course)."

"What piece of property – hilly terrain and beautiful scenery. Typical of Coore and Crenshaw, they delivered the holes beautifully, each one unique. I loved the crumpled alleys, mounds and hummocks, gigantic greens, the ups and downs and all aspects of the design. "

"A great practice area with an indoor installation with three bumpers complements some of the first class amenities. If invited to stay in one of the cottages, charming like nowhere else. "
