Triggs Memorial Golf Course was conceived by Ross in the early 1930's and opened in the spring of 1932. As is typical of many Ross designs, Triggs Memorial is considered an exceptional layout featuring long difficult par 4's, "reachable" par 5's, and spectacular par 3's. The design follows the natural contours of the site with moderate and relatively gentle changes in elevation and small strategically bunkered greens. (This excerpt taken from the Triggs Memorial Golf Course website)
