Crumpin-Fox Club was conceived in 1969 as the “field of dreams” of David Berelson, who engaged the services of Roger Rulewich of Robert Trent Jones, Inc to locate a site that would accommodate a Pine Valley type golf course.
Under the direction of Roger Rulewich, the front nine holes were built along with extensive renovations to the existing back nine holes, the driving range and the irrigation system. Bent grass fairways were planted and the course opened in June of 1990.
“It is easy to enter Avernus,” begins Dante’s Inferno, and so might the description of number one at Crumpin- Fox begin.
Truly the first of eighteen great finishing holes, the green is invisible from the tee on this sharp dogleg right. The lone pine on the mound to the right beckons the ambitious player.
The prudent player assays a route down the center of the fairway leaving an uncontested mid- iron shot to an elevated green flanked by two cavernous bunkers.
