Here is an overview of currently converted courses:

Barton Creek Fazio Foothills

Fazio Foothills is located in Austin, Texas and is considered to be one of the finest courses in the American southwest. The course is one of Tom Fazio’s crowning achievements with its mixture of dramatic views, brilliant layout, and natural limestone caves as backgrounds.

Cabo Del Sol: The Ocean Course

Cabo Del Sol: The Ocean Course is poised against a magnificent backdrop of the brilliantly beautiful Sea of Cortez. The sea is sharply contrasted by the golden shores and beautiful green turf.

This course will challenge, excite, and reward golfers of any skill level and is considered a ‘must play,’ for serious golfers.

Hokulia Club

Hokuli’a is generous off the first tee but tests your iron game with demanding approach shots. Open year round, this ocean side club was designed to provide a sheltered climate from costal breezes with each hole providing a dramatic view of the Pacific Ocean. It is the only private ocean side golf course located on the Big Island. Hokulia was designed by Jack Nicklaus in 2002.

Kuneticka Hora

The championship 18-hole course overlooking the local viewing point, Kunětická hora Mountain, is the work of the world-famous Australian architect Graham Marsh. Its sophisticated design, with wide fairways, thick roughs and numerous bunkers, will challenge all golfers. Six of the holes span three lakes. In the complex there is also a 4-kilometre long track for in-line skating. It opened for play in 2007.

Latrobe

One hour southeast of Pittsburgh, is Latrobe, Pennsylvania. The small township is known for its idyllic views and being the hometown of golf legend Arnold Palmer. The world-class and creative golf was improved and redesigned by The King, whose legend can be traced all the way back to the courses creation. When the course was being constructed in 1921, a young man named Milford Deacon Palmer was helping build the country club. This was Arnold Palmer’s father. Arnold Palmer purchased Latrobe Country Club in 1971.

Loch Lomond

Nestled on the banks of Loch Lomond and only 25 minutes away from Glasgow, Loch Lomond Golf Club is known for its history, hospitality and world-class golf.

The course was home to the Scottish Open for a number of years.

The Oslo Golf Club began as a 9-hole course on the southern shore of Lake Bogstad and has since transformed to the 18-hole championship track golfers know and love today.

It has been in continuous operation since its founding, with the exception of World War II, when the land was used to farm potatoes.

The course features a new environmentally friendly water management system based on conservation and recycling.

Pine Canyon

Pine Canyon packs the “wow,” factor for any golfer who thinks they have seen it all. Designed by Jay Morrish, the course opened in 1994. Pine Canyon is lined with beautiful Ponderosa Pines and dramatic features that are in play throughout the course. It is one of the most exclusive private clubs and golf communities in Arizona.

Pinehurst No. 8

No. 8 opened in 1996 to commemorate Pinehurst’s Centennial. Fazio incorporated signature Ross features into the design of No. 8, including dips and swales around the greens, sloping greens, and false fronts. As the site of the PGA Club Pro Championship in 1997 and 1998, it is a proven championship course that daunts and delights all who play it.

Sanctuary Golf Course

Just outside of Denver, Colorado is one of the most exclusive golf courses on the planet. Sanctuary Golf Course was founded and built in 1997 by RE/MAX founder and co-founder, Dave and Gail Liniger.

Play is limited to approximately 20 charity events per year – and rounds are auctioned off. 

Stone Canyon

Stone Canyon, situated in the Oro Valley outside of Tuscon, is as stunning as it is creative, “It’s the most remarkable desert site I’ve ever seen,” Jay Morrish, the course designer said. “None of the others are in the same league with Stone Canyon.” Even this ringing endorsement does not do Stone Canyon Golf Course justice. From the rock formations to the picturesque view of the Tortolia Mountains, Stone Canyon is a masterpiece of golf and landscape design.

Visitors come from all around the world to explore and experience fishing, surfing, and golf. Welcome to Taghazout, home of Taghazout Golf Course. The course was designed by Mike Jones.

The course balances new ideas and old traditions to create an always unique and extremely challenging round of golf. The course’s design never belies the surrounding beauty of Cashiers. The result is seamless imbrications of manmade and natural beauty and an outstanding round of golf.
