Donald Ross Throughout Florida

By: Carling Nolan


Donald Ross is one of the most famous golf course designers in the world. He was involved in designing or redesigning about 400 courses from 1900–1948, laying the foundation for America's golf industry.

Ross’ most famous designs are Pinehurst No. 2, Aronimink Golf Club, Seminole Golf Club, Oak Hill, Inverness Club and Oakland Hills.

His most widely known trademark is the crowned or "turtleback" green, most famously seen on Pinehurst No. 2. Luckily, you can find a Ross course in almost any city in Florida. For all you Donald Ross junkies, here’s a list of his courses.
