August 27, 2024 | Malvern, PA

A Hanse Home Game

Prestigious assignments the world over can’t tear Gil Hanse’s heart from Applebrook. It’s one of his earliest solo designs, and he still lives just down the road. It bears all the hallmarks of his best work: extreme variety, myriad lines of play, and a set of 18 green sites that will make you want to drop balls and hit chip shots until the sun goes down. Spend a late summer afternoon exploring one of Philadelphia’s best-kept secrets with the Broken Tee Society.
