A great honor to place FIRST as well as have two on the list! The Fort Golf Resort, located at Fort Harrison State Park, is ranked at the top of Golf Advisor's list of the best golf course layouts in the U.S.
The list was determined based on reviews of publicly-accessible golf courses in 2018 from Golf Advisor users. The Fort was originally designed in the 1930s by Bill Diddle. We redesigned it as project architect for Pete Dye in 1997.
The second golf course on the list, ranked 13th was Wintonbury Hills golf course in Bloomfield, Connecticut. Again, I was project architect for Pete Dye. What they're saying: "Pete Dye and Tim Liddy did a great job serving up a course that high handicappers can navigate and lower handicappers will still enjoy - an ideal muni situation. The long par-4 14th along the reservoir remains one of the coolest holes in New England, and the bouncy turf makes every full shot interesting." -
