Golf course architect Mark Fine has completed a renovation project at Copake Country Club in Craryville, New York, which is celebrating its centenary this year.
The public course, a 1921 Devereux Emmet design, sits on the shores of Copake Lake in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains.
The 6,300-yard layout was almost lost to a real estate development that would have seen 400 houses built on the site, but in 2006 an initiative led by local resident Jon Urban saved the course from destruction.
Fine’s master plan included renovation work and some restoration and preservation of Golden Age features originally designed by Emmet. “The long history of Copake demanded that respect be paid to this era of design,” he said.
