Lovers of golf course architecture know that the Course at Yale is one of the country's great Raynor treasures. Those same people likely know that the course is in need of investment and a little T.L.C. to bring it back to former glory. In an interesting new proposal, an investor and Yale Alumnus named Roland Betts has suggested a partnership with Yale University to restore the course. According to an article in the Yale Daily News, the renovation is, "expected to cost $3.5 million... and would be 'faithful to its original, historic design,' according to Betts." Betts is the chairman of Redan Reserve LLC, a clear nod to golf course architecture, and the proposal states that Redan would restore and operate the golf course as well as build lodging on nearby land that would include nearly 80 rooms. The proposal is in its early stages, but it could mean big changes for the Course at Yale.
