Ohio native Jack Nicklaus declared when planning this course in his home state, "I set out to build not only an outstanding golf course for every level of player, but a magnificent course for watching a tournament... I thought the Masters was a great thing for golf and that I'd like to do the same thing in Columbus." At Muirfield Village, he has certainly succeeded. The championship layout is top-notch and is always impeccably groomed. A lovely lane leads from the entrance to the clubhouse, which features a roomy locker room, an attentive staff and a restaurant with a panoramic view of the par 4 18th. The PGA Tour comes every spring, so the practice facilities are in perfect order. Nicklaus has returned a number of times to fine tune his creation to ensure that it accommodates everyone from the pros to the casual golfers among the membership.
