Hazelton Golf Course

Rehoboth, Massachusetts

After a few years of fallow, Sun Valley NKA, Hazelton Golf Course, has returned.  Working in a design build framework, “restoration work” was planned through careful study of the existing Mr. Cornish 1953 routing still hanging on the clubhouse wall.  Greens sketches were developed to expand the green surface and re-position hazards to reflect today’s game.  Fairway bunkers and forward tees were flagged in the field taking into account more females golfers.  And as the Scottish golf architect Old Tom Morris would have done, fairway’s were flagged in the hay fields for cutting and the slow transition back to close cut turf.
