Aberdeen Garners Top 5 Position in Golf Digest’s 2019 Best New Private Courses in US
Aberdeen Golf & Country Club based here was named one of the nation’s top five best new private courses for 2019 by Golf Digest in its annual survey just announced.
Golf Digest is a monthly golf magazine (c. 1,663,571) located in New York City, and published by Discovery, Inc. under its Discovery Golf division. It is a generalist golf publication covering recreational golf and men’s and women’s competitive golf (www.golfdigest.com).
The Aberdeen course redesigned by architect Jim Fazio is 7,091-yards long and a par 72.
Fazio undertook a total restoration of the original Desmond Muirhead course that opened in 1987.
Aberdeen is now a far more exciting golf course with sculptured bunkers and contoured greens. The one Muirhead feature Fazio retained is the alternate isthmus fairway on the par-5 fourth. “It embraces all the Homeric ideas of courage,” Muirhead wrote in 1987, adding, “Odysseus would have liked this hole.” Fazio summed it up differently: “It cuts a hundred yards off the hole.” To spice this hole up, Fazio added a Biarritz green, which is a putting green that features a deep gully, or swale, bisecting its middle.
The top five private courses ranked by Golf Digest shows:
1. Ohoopee Match Club (Cobbtown, Ga)
2. The Summit Club (Las Vegas)
3. TPC Colorado (Berthoud, Colo.)
4. Links at Perry Cabin St. (Michaels, Md.)
5. Aberdeen Golf & Country Club (Boynton Beach, Fl.)
“We are honored to be in such prestigious company,” said Michael DiPietro, chief operating officer/general manager and President David Tager of the private country club in Palm Beach County, which has the nation’s largest congregation of golf courses.
