The Golf Courses of Lawsonia
Opened for play in May, 1930, the Links course remains unique to date. Designed by William Langford, the course is arranged in the Scottish golf links tradition. Elevated greens, unusually severe bunkers, and open rolling terrain still create great difficulty. According to legend, a boxcar is buried beneath the seventh green providing its extraordinary elevation.
Year after year, decade after decade, the Links layout has essentially reserved a spot on lists of the nation's top 100 public courses in national golf publications.
Opened in 1983 as a beautiful, wooded 9-hole course designed by Rocky Roquemore. The holes meander through maples, pines and aspens. Eight years later the second nine was opened to complement the original nine to seamlessly form the 6618-yard Woodlands course.
Is there a Spirit of Lawsonia? The author looks at the courses of Lawsonia through the eyes of a weekend player, while experiencing personal and spiritual development after a long absence from the golf course where he learned to play the game.
