Thousand Island Country Club changed ownership in June of 2014. Since then the focus has been on turf recovery on the old course. A redesign of the old course on some tee locations and relocation of tee boxes trying to recover the original design of Seth Reynor. The Old Course open in 1894 the same year the USGA was formed. Some building renovation is taking place such as the Villas and the Marina. Meanwhile the stimp on the Old Course greens is around 10. A great staff is there to greet you. Rob Peluso is GM, Mark Benz, PGA Head Professional and Dave Getner as Superintendent. The 2016 season is here and this course is ready to go.

This course is an absolute monster. I'm not good enough to play it, but I will do so again and again anyway. If you can't hit your fairway woods then you should go elsewhere or you'll end up wondering why you pay to hate this game by the 5th hole. Facilities are great, offering anything you'd need short of what you'd find at a private club. Cost is appropriate for the magnitude of this course, easily the best bargain-per-yard of any 18 hole course I've ever played. Signature hole would have to be #11, where you will drive off an elevated tee toward Lake of the Isles and wonder why it didn't go as far as it looked like it would.

This course is just awesome. My inability to even think about conquering it makes me hesitate to offer further commentary. If you shoot within 5-10 strokes of par on a regular basis PLEASE play this course. It will humble you....and if you play enough golf to be that good then you could probably use a good humbling :)
