BOYNTON BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aberdeen Golf & Country Club (www.aberdeencountryclub.com) based here was named one of the nation’s top five best new private courses for 2019 by Golf Digest in its annual survey just announced.
Golf Digest is a monthly golf magazine (c. 1,663,571) located in New York City, and published by Discovery, Inc. under its Discovery Golf division. It is a generalist golf publication covering recreational golf and men's and women's competitive golf (www.golfdigest.com).
The Aberdeen course redesigned by architect Jim Fazio is 7,091-yards long and a par 72.
Fazio undertook a total restoration of the original Desmond Muirhead course that opened in 1987.
Aberdeen is now a far more exciting golf course with sculptured bunkers and contoured greens. The one Muirhead feature Fazio retained is the alternate isthmus fairway on the par-5 fourth. “It embraces all the Homeric ideas of courage,” Muirhead wrote in 1987, adding, “Odysseus would have liked this hole.” Fazio summed it up differently: “It cuts a hundred yards off the hole.” To spice this hole up, Fazio added a Biarritz green, which is a putting green that features a deep gully, or swale, bisecting its middle.
The top five private courses ranked by Golf Digest shows:
1. Ohoopee Match Club (Cobbtown, Ga)
2. The Summit Club (Las Vegas)
3. TPC Colorado (Berthoud, Colo.)
4. Links at Perry Cabin St. (Michaels, Md.)
5. Aberdeen Golf & Country Club (Boynton Beach, Fl.)
“We are honored to be in such prestigious company,” said Michael DiPietro, chief operating officer/general manager and President David Tager of the private country club in Palm Beach County, which has the nation’s largest congregation of golf courses.
