Tom Weiskopf started his career in course design in partnership with Jay Morrish, working with Morrish on such celebrated creations as Troon North, Troon Country Club, Loch Lomond, Forest Highlands (Canyon Course) and Double Eagle.
When the pair split Weiskopf joined forces with Phil Smith and he has continued to produce sound work and to limit himself to two or three projects at any one time. His course at Cabo del Sol (Desert Course) is very enjoyable, while Yellowstone Club and Spanish Peaks in Montana (both with Smith) are gorgeous courses to look at but without the same level of design sophistication as his best work elsewhere.
Weiskopf is one of those rare ‘signature’ designers who is not only passionate about his courses but hands-on, certainly during the design stage of the project. For developers considering his services, therefore, the fact that Tom Weiskopf will personally be involved in the design and construction of the layout is very reassuring and has helped Weiskopf develop a good reputation for producing quality work.
