In Tom Doak’s Confidential Guide to Golf (Volume 3), he visited Hooper and had some pretty positive things to say as he considers “Hooper” the 2nd best 9-hole course in America.
His list of the best 3 opening holes in golf:
- Hooper GC
- Yale GC
- Garden City GC
- Chicago GC
- Nation Golf Links of America
- White Bear Yacht Club
- Pine Valley GC
Quote about Hooper:
“I racked my brain trying to think if I’d ever seen a better pair of opening holes and in the moment, anyway, I could think of none”
