Course Description:
Exmoor Country Club, founded in 1896, presents golfers with a classical golf experience. It is a
course that exemplifies the Golden Age of golf architecture — 1910-1937 — a period when many of
America’s most influential courses were built. The layout features design antecedents to the great
courses of Scotland: imaginative grass-faced bunkers, challenging green complexes and 18 holes
shaped in natural ways by the land on which they were built.

Donald J. Ross, considered the “Dean” of American golf course architects, designed the Exmoor golf
course in 1915. Golf architect Ron Prichard completed a course restoration in 2003, and working
recently with Mr.
Prichard, Exmoor resurfaced its greens with Pure Distinction bent grass, redefined green pads and
added new grass approaches to all greens.
In 2019, Exmoor engaged in a bunker renovation including the recapturing of original bunker edges
and faces, new drainage with Better Billy Bunker liner, and installation of ProAngle bunker sand.
With more projects on the horizon, Exmoor will be continuing to preserve and restore this Donald
Ross classic.
