Tom Doak Hired to Design 4th Course at Sand Valley Golf Resort in Rome, Wisconsin


Sand Valley Golf Resort is thrilled to announce that the Keisers have hired Tom Doak to design the 4th course at the property. Routed within a restored sedge savannah that many consider the best golf land at Sand Valley, Doak’s routing measures 6,100 yards with a par of 68. The Keisers and Doak are very excited to introduce American golfers to a type of golf course long known and loved throughout England; one that doesn’t conform to expectations of length or par.

(It’s) a concept I have wanted to pursue for years — to build a great par-68 course for America like England has so many of.  Courses like Swinley Forest, Rye, West Sussex, Cavendish, and St. Enodoc are some of my favorite places in golf, and it’s a shame there is nothing like them over here.” – Tom Doak
