David McLay Kidd is to design the second course at the Sand Valley resort, a planned multi-course resort in Wisconsin, US.
The resort’s developer Mike Keiser, the man behind the Bandon Dunes resort, revealed that Kidd has been selected to develop a course to accompany the already under-development course designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw at the site.
Groundbreaking is likely to take place early next year. Coore and Crenshaw’s course is set to open in the summer of 2017, with McLay Kidd’s scheduled to open the following year.
McLay Kidd previously worked with Keiser at the Bandon Dunes resort. The Oregon-based architect designed the first course at the site, which shares the Bandon Dunes name.
“David identified perhaps the most interesting part of our site and has routed the golfer through it in a very exciting way,” said Keiser. “I truly am looking forward to working with him again.”
