The Loop at Forest Dunes


World renowned golf course architect Tom Doak has built a reversible 18-hole golf course at Forest Dunes that opened for public play on June 27, 2016.

The Loop features two distinct layouts using the same 18 greens but playing clockwise one day (Black routing) and counterclockwise the next (Red).  The concept isn’t a new one, after all St. Andrews was built to be played in two different directions.  But, iconic holes like the Road Hole (No. 17) and the par-3 11th were “must plays” and pushed the alternate routing into extinction.

What Doak has done with The Loop is constructed two equally-impressive tracks using a special piece of land to the west of Forest Dunes’ current course.  The relatively flat, sand-based earth is the perfect location for this concept giving owner Lew Thompson a revolutionary course to go along with Forest Dunes' top 25 nationally ranked public course.

The Loop and its fescue fairways is walking only with caddie service available.
