The Craters of the Moon


Of the many new and arresting courses constructed in recent years in Florida and the Caribbean countries, one of the most handsome is The Country Club of Florida, located in the Village of Golf on the outskirts of Delray Beach. Designed by Robert Bruce Harris, the veteran Chicago architect, the course is typically Floridian in some aspects, but a number of its holes tumble over terrain that suggests the pine-tree country of the Carolinas, and one hole, the par-3 fourth pictured above, is so scarred by traps that the approach to the greens has a positively lunar quality. The course—the Western Amateur Championship will be played over it next month—is the heart of a development spearheaded by Carleton Blunt, a former WGA president, now mayor of the Village of Golf.
