Re-designing a world-class course.
Rees Jones has designed or redesigned more than 225 golf courses in his career, including seven U.S. Open venues, eight PGA Championship courses, five Ryder Cup and two Walker Cup sites, as well as the President’s Cup at The Royal Montreal Golf Club. Among his notable original designs are Nantucket Golf Club, Atlantic Golf Club, The Golf Club at Briar’s Creek, RedStick Golf Club, Ocean Forest Golf Club, Haig Point Club, Waldorf Astoria Golf Club, The Bridge and Cascata Golf Course.
“I am looking forward to getting underway at The Course at McLemore. The natural site is ideal for golf, with beautiful vistas and dramatic terrain. The foundation for an intriguing golf experience is there. We are going to enhance the features that require strategy, create definition, and make it more flexible, so that every caliber of golfer can enjoy playing The Course at McLemore time after time.”
As a professional golfer, Bill played in excess of 250 professional tournaments worldwide, including three U.S. Opens, two British Opens, and more than 50 PGA Tour events. Bergin has been involved in the planning and design of over 50 projects, including The Club at Foxland Harbor, named one of Golfweek’s “2009 Best New Courses;” Oaks Country Club, selected as Golf Digest’s “4th Best Remodel in the US for 2015;” Chariot Run, Golfweek’s “#3 Best Course You Can Play in Indiana;” Justin Timberlake’s Mirimichi, named Golfweek’s “#1 Best Course You Can Play in Tennessee;” and Chattanooga Golf & Country Club, an acclaimed Donald Ross restoration along the Tennessee River.
"From the moment I stepped foot on the land encompassed by The Course at McLemore, there has been a sense of anticipation, excitement and serenity. What a beautiful feeling one gets when simply taking in all that is offered here. Rees and I will transform this golf course to a level that matches this amazing property."
