Tom Doak's Forest Dunes Loop Course is a design concept that challenges conventional golf course architecture. The Loop is an 18-hole reversible design and was the first of its kind in the U.S.
One of the goals in creating this golf course was to make Forest Dunes a golf destination where golfers from around the country would want to come and stay multiple nights and have a unique golf experience versus just passing through. The Loop is in basically three golf courses and a golf package will allow golfers to stay for two-nights to play all three courses. Doak hopes the first reaction to The Loop is that the golf course is fun, regardless of which direction it's played.
Doak said, “The second reaction; we want them to be curious. We want them to wonder how could it be just as good playing it backwards." The hope is, people are fascinated to play it more so they can understand how it all fits together.
The Loop, with its revolutionary reversible design concept, will be a walking only experience featuring the option of professional caddies. The two layouts will alternate directions on a daily basis allowing golfers to experience a unique 54-hole golf vacation package unlike any other.
