Aetna Springs Resort

Pope Valley, California
Opened 2008, Closed 2018

We had always hoped to design a nine-hole course from scratch, and this total reconstruction of the historic Aetna Springs course was close enough to that, even though some of our changes to the routing turned out to be restorations of holes that had long since disappeared. Because of the intimate size of the property and the goal of building a course families could enjoy, we tried a few tricks here we might not have used on a full-length course, as the course features several of the narrowest fairways and smallest greens we've ever built.
