The DOUBLE PLATEAU (3 Tier) is the most uniquely attributable to a Raynor design within his repertoire of template green complexes. It also affords the most varied hole locations and option oriented-challenging approach shots… truly Raynor at his links oriented strategic best.

Early pictures reveal the green on MVCC #9 was larger and exhibited the features of a classic Raynor DOUBLE PLATEAU (3 Tier) green. Thus we are addressing the lack of pinnable areas/slope issues on #9 by modifying the front right and extending the front left to restore this green to its original roots.

The renovated front plateaus will be separated by a 12+ inch rise and feature multiple pinnable locations as the surface will be sloped at < 3%.
