To the keen observer, the Pulpit course at the Pulpit Club is the grandfather of the golf-heavy region of Caledon an hour northwest of downtown Toronto. That, and it was also a monumental moment for Dr. Michael Hurdzan & Dana Fry’s career as golf architects.
As first holes go, not many get more dramatic as the Pulpit, tumbling down the hillside to this par 5-converted-to-a-4. From there, most of the front nine routing fights its way back up to the top to make for a similar star to the back nine.
Of particular interest, Pulpit features a ton of concepts untested in architecture. As a result, a lot of interesting design principals are on display: the triple fairway, for example, is dramatic and unique, but has strategic value in each route; the three-leaf clover green on the par 3, 3rd is epic; finally, the par 4, 7th actually doglegs around a small cemetery. How many golf courses can showcase this much creativity in the concepts presented?
