"Richard Mandell's golf design practice has taken off over the last 10 years. He entered the business in the early 1990’s and paid his dues for over a decade working singular jobs while learning how to build and renovate courses with a minimal amount of of unnecessary inputs or accessorization. As a result he gained a reputation as a conscientious, hands-on designer who works practically and economically."

"In 2014, Raleigh-based McConnell Golf purchased the club. Then, in 2016, McConnell brough in golf course architect Richard Mandell to modernize the aging Ross design. 'He changed a lot of the contours on the greens. The greens had gotten flat, so he added a lot of character back into them, but made the pins very puttable,' said golf course superintendent Robby Watts, GCSAA."
