For over 100 years Scioto Country Club has served as the paragon of the North American country club. Boyhood home to Jack Nicklaus and host to a suite of major championships, the fame of this adored Top 100 layout is due in no small part to the genius of its Donald Ross routing, which remains intact save for modifications over the years by several architects to include Dick Wilson in the late 1950s.  Our commission, with the blessing and consultation of Jack Nicklaus, was to update course features - tees, bunkers, fairways, tree plantings, et cetera - in advance of the 2008 golf season.  Confirmation of our collective success, with incalculable assistance from then and current superintendent Bob Becker, were the rave reviews by media and players alike in the wake 2016 USGA Senior Open.  Now in 2021, the club has now embarked on a full course restoration with the guidance of noted Donald Ross specialist Andrew Green, whose rapidly expanding portfolio includes Oak Hill, Inverness and Congressional CC, and who has the latitude in his mission to make dramatic changes on an otherwise sacrosanct  tract of ground.
