As The Country Club in Brookline, Mass., prepares to host the 2013 U.S. Amateur Championship, the club focused on taking a fresh approach to their classic golf course. "When we started on this process, we really (focused) on how do we preserve traditions of the club, preserve the traditions of this golf course, yet look to the future of the game,” said Gil Hanse, who was hand-picked to lead the remodel of this iconic course. "[W]e had to look at this great, classic golf course and figure out how do we update it without taking away the character, the beauty and the tradition of it.”
