Tetherow was designed by renowned architect David McLay Kidd. Kidd was raised at Gleneagles in central Scotland playing early golf over the famous James Braid designed Kings Course, and is now one of the leading golf course architects in the world. Among his credits is Bandon Dunes on the Oregon Coast, a course consistently named by Golf Magazine, Golf Digest and Golfweek as one of the world’s best.
The design incorporates elements of the seaside links David grew up with in his native Scotland: fescue grasses, deep uneven bunkers, rippling fairways and run-up areas to the greens.
