The Berms and Pigeon Run Courses make up the Traditional 18 Hole Layout at Town & Country Golf Course. The original 18 holes were designed by Homer Fieldhouse. They opened for play in 1962.
Over the years, the original layout has been altered slightly while keeping Mr. Fieldhouse's design philosophy the same. Many new tees and hazards have been added to make the course more challenging, yet fair.
The Berms Course was originally holes 10-18, but has now been changed to be the first 9 holes on the new 18 hole layout. It received its name for numerous Berms that surround many of the holes.
The Pigeon Run Course was originally holes 1-9, but has now been changed to be the second 9 holes of the new 18 hole layout. Its named derived from the scenic Pigeon River which runs through it.
From the longest tees the course plays to a yardage of 6,058 yards with a rating/slope of 68.8/117. The Riverwoods Course is the newest nine at Town & Country. It opened in 1982 and was designed by Stuebenrach Architects.
This nines characteristics are slightly different than the original 18 hole layout. The Riverwoods has large greens which makes 3 putting a frequent occurance. It also requires many accurate drives off the tee because of the Pigeon "RIVER" which runs through a handful of holes combined with the "WOODS" that also surround many holes. Hence the name, Riverwoods.
