The Rawls Course at Texas Tech

Texas

Located in Lubbock, TX. It was a most unlikely place for renowned golf course architect Tom Doak to follow up his Oregon masterpiece Pacific Dunes: a flat cotton field in Lubbock, Texas. And yet, on the high plains of the West Texas panhandle, where the sky is big and blue, the wind is unabated and the land is dry and flat, Doak created the Rawls Course for Texas Tech University, immediately one of the finest university courses in the country.


A minimalist by reputation, Doak and his team from Renaissance Golf stepped out of that role for this design, moving 1.3 million yards of topsoil to sculp a course described by the architect as "probably the most complicated we've done to date." Creating an entire landscape from scratch, they shaped the earth to mimic the land east and south of Lubbock, where the great plain suddenly starts falling into the valleys and canyons that lead to the Caprock region. The result is a 7,207-yard, par-72, feat of engineering that fully exemplifies Doak's philosophies on design and strategy, most notably the unusually wide fairways and boldly contoured greens.
