White Horse gets tweaked with Harbottle design

Updated: April 4, 2011

Pacific Northwest golf course designer John Harbottle, has been keeping busy with West Coast projects.

The renovation of White Horse Golf Club began this month in Kingston, WA. A soft touch is being used to preserve the original design of this Suquamish Tribe-owned championship layout while making modifications that will allow players to better use the terrain to their advantage. The grading changes proposed will create more opportunity for the ground game and improve playability. This work is scheduled for completion this fall.

Harbottle also has construction projects underway or ready to commence at AV Macan Originals, Fircrest Golf Club in Tacoma and Manito Golf and Country Club in Spokane.
