Golf Course Enhancements

In the 1950s leading golf designer Robert Trent Jones was invited to make suggestions for improving the course. Many of his new layouts and remodeling work around the world have been dominated by big, bold statements, yet his touch at Mid Ocean was light, subtle, and restrained. Respecting the design of Macdonald, he re-worked a number of tees and bunkers, enhancing a slightly ageing masterpiece rather than indulging in invasive surgery. The result is as good today as it was then; the course now measuring slightly longer and playable between 5,045 and 6,512 yards. Some 7,000 new trees were also planted in the mid-fifties after many cedars were blighted by disease.
