About This Photograph

Before the 2004 U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship came to Rush Creek, the Maple Grove, Minn., public facility had hosted the World Championship of Women's Golf in 1999. Robert Cupp and John Fought, the 1977 U.S. Amateur champion, designed the layout. Because the site's terrain was so varied open prairie, pockets of hardwoods, cat-tailed marshes, floating bogs, generous elevation changes Cupp and Fought decided that little dirt needed to be moved in creating the layout. The architects adapted natural golf holes to the routing and then enhanced their shot values with strategic tee and bunker placements.
