When it opens this coming Friday, Mountain Park Golf Course, the newest Gary Player Signature design, will be one of only a handful of courses opening by any designer in North America in 2013. The 7200-yard layout was designed to the highest environmental standards, but also with playability for all levels in mind. Surrounded by more than a million acres of state parks and national forests, the Mountain Park Golf Course is set in a stunning wooded valley, with several holes routed along the Saluda River in South Carolina.
Mountain Park is just one of the courses that Gary Player Design will add in the coming months to its international portfolio, which includes over 300 courses across the globe in over 35 countries. The company also plans on opening Gary Player Signature courses in India next month and in Honduras early next year.
