4. Ohio State University Golf Club (Scarlet)

Ohio State University
Columbus, Ohio

Alister MacKenzie, the architect of Cypress Point and Augusta National, designed Ohio State’s Scarlet course in 1931 but died in 1934, before ground was broken. Thankfully, Perry Maxwell oversaw the construction, which was completed in 1938. Scarlet has been home to Ohio State players like Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf and John Cook, and Nicklaus returned recently for a renovation that restored the bunkers and lengthened the course to 7,455 yards.
