Winged Foot takes giant steps preparing for 2020 U.S. Open

Architect, Gil Hanse, worked with superintendent, Steve Rabideau, and a construction team from LaBar Golf Renovations to renovate Winged Foot Golf Club’s West Course in Mamaroneck, NY. In 2016, LaBar redid the greens, bunkers, and tees on the back nine holes of A.W. Tillinghast’s 1923 design. In September of 2017, the renovation crew rebuilt the front nine holes.
