RGD selected to design the 4th course at Sand Valley Golf Resort in Wisconsin
It’s) a concept I have wanted to pursue for years -- to build a great par-68 course for America like England has so many of.  Courses like Swinley Forest, Rye, West Sussex, Cavendish, and St. Enodoc are some of my favorite places in golf, and it's a shame there is nothing like them over here." – Tom Doak
