Members and their guests
Tom Fazio earned praise for working with his uncle George Fazio to create the National, and three decades later he returned to Canada to design the Coppinwood on a stunning, undeveloped site with wide vistas. Beginning with the first hole, the designer's signature flashed-sand bunkering contribute to the beauty of the place; this par 5 extends beside a gorge down to a slightly raised green. The rest of the front nine are fine, but things get interesting with the par 3, 244-yard 11th, with its green set in a broad rock hollow. The following run of the holes is among the finest in the country. In particular, the par 4 12th moves down and then up to the green, while the par 5 15th plays downward to a green facing out over a cliff. So Fazio delivers, though some critics suggest that he might have done better given his incredible raw material.
