Now that I am almost finished Wade Hampton I am considering Winged Foot East if nobody else is building it.

Is anybody building Winged Foot East?

Thanks,

Ian

I began to look at Winged Foot in more detail after I issued the beta version of Wade Hampton, but before I could put pencil to paper the problems with Wade Hampton were highlighted.
Once I clear the problems with Wade Hampton, or admit defeat at so doing, I will return to looking at Winged Foot East.

Thanks for your interest and I hope I can complete it.

Winged Foot East.

An A.W. Tillinghast course (1923)

Some of the strongest par 3s in the country.

The West Course is a par 72 that measures 7,264 yards. The East Course is a par 72 that measures 6,750 yards. Golf Digest' ranked the West Course 10th and the East Course 62th in its 2017-18 listing of America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses. Not sure what version, probably the West that was once available for download at APCD site, but was not a member. The West course will host the 2020 U.S. Men's Open and has the memorable par 3 #10th hole. By the way Phil Mickelson lost the 2006 U. S. Men's Open there to Geoff Ogilvie after leading going into last hole with a wayward drive. That is the only major Mickelson does not have.

I was a member over at APCD Courses for a couple years before the crash and I downloaded all of the exclusive courses as well as paid for and downloaded all of the P2P/P4P courses that were available there. Because APCD Courses site is shutting down and Winged Foot West was an exclusive and not a P2P/P4P, here is a link to download Winged Foot West - https://we.tl/qYNWFNP384. The link will be available for 7 days. The Links version of Winged Foot West was designed by Ross Mackenzie and was setup for the 2006 US Open at 7,294 yards, par 70.

Ian, sorry to hijack your post, I am looking forward to your version of Winged Foot East.

gator,
No problem, I am sure the members will be a lot more excited about getting Winged Foot West to play than my intentions to do Winged Foot East.

Hi gentlemen...

I was reading over this post about Winged Foot and have some questions for some of you that are familiar with the courses. Let me state right up front that I know absolutely NOTHING about the Winged Foot courses and I have no idea what I'm talking about. Laugh When I saw this thread, I thought I would go take a look at it on Google Earth. That leads me to some questions.

First, I assume WF west, and WF East are all on the same common grounds on Fenimore Road, in Mamaroneck, NY. It looks like there are 2 courses squeezed together side-by-side. After looking it over for a while, I started wondering what it is that is so appealing about the courses. From looking it over on Google Earth, it appears fairly flat and wide open and uninteresting. The tee boxes are all perfectly straight-edged and rectangle shaped, and the greens are some of the oddest shaped and most armature looking greens I've ever seen. What is it about these courses that would make them special enough to want to replicate for Links?

Please don't anyone misunderstand the meaning of my post. I'm not trying to put down Winged Foot. I understand it's a well known place, but after looking it over, I have to wonder what the attraction is. What I saw just didn't strike me as anything special.

I took a screen shot of it on my ultra-wide monitor, but didn't want to attach it to this message because it's 3440x1440 in size. I provided a link to it instead.

If someone that is familiar with it can take a look at the picture and identify which is the east and west course, I would appreciate it. Google Earth or Maps doesn't identify which is which...

Thanks,

Dan

Hi Dan,
These are links to identify the two courses:

https://www.golfdigest.com/story/winged-foot-gc-east-course-tour

https://www.golfdigest.com/story/winged-foot-golf-club-west-course-tour

You are correct about the courses being flat. Perhaps that was what attracted me after Wade Hampton.

Dan,
Thanks for your PM. I am having problems with receiving notifications on post and PMs and sending PMs.

I have written a PM to you but it sits in the outbox and will not move, as does a PM to Andy.

Hopefully Andy will charge to my rescue and tell me what I am doing wrong.

Ian
