Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer came here in 1963 to endure one of Texas’ hottest weeks ever, with temperatures rising as high as 113 degrees during the PGA Championship tournament. Nicklaus prevailed that week, and eventually he returned to renovate Ralph Plummer’s original layouts. Plummer’s courses were mostly flat, with immature, basic greens. Nicklaus toughened them up with mounding, bent-grass greens and other subtle features to make them more of a championship caliber.

The Blue Course was redesigned by Nicklaus in 1985, and was improved with more updated features such as mounding and grass bunkers. The greens were replaced with bent-grass, and waterfalls were added around holes 5 and 11.
