The Course at Sewanee
The Course at Sewanee was renovated by Gil Hanse in 2013 — Golf Magazine’s 2009 Architect of the Year.
While the original hole routing remains the same, Hanse has reimagined, redesigned and rebuilt almost every other aspect of the course—including all nine green complexes, challenging new bunkers, and a distinct set of alternate tees—while being ever mindful of the delicate ecosystem on the Cumberland Plateau. Standing on the reshaped tee of #5 The Edge, it is easy to see why Gil was commissioned to design the 2016 Olympic course in Rio de Janeiro and chosen to refashion the Blue Monster at the TPC in Doral, Fla.
Complemented by the Sewanee Inn and a soon to be completed golf lodge, golfers and even those just out for a stroll are in for a treat.
