"What the Dormie Club manages is to muster a classic feel and ambiance, the soul of golf, with a routing that is anything but old fashioned."
"Calling it ‘Bandon Trails East’ wouldn’t be too far off. All-natural Dormie Club plays somewhat similar to the Coore-Crenshaw Pacific Northwest gem, with tall pines lining wide fairways bordered by sandy waste areas."
"Much of modern course architecture has been missing this key strategic element, but the throwback Dormie Club has restored the Golden Age philosophy of wide corridors and multiple angles to the green."
"Developers joke that ‘one foot of dirt’ was moved to build Dormie Club. While that’s a slight exaggeration and virtually unheard of in today’s ‘bulldozer age’ of golf course design, Dormie Club’s natural setting really is a throwback layout in the ilk of British Open venues."
