Each course is a masterpiece, and together they are regarded as two of the finest layouts from golf's Golden Age of architecture.
The fairway bunkering defines the correct side of the fairway on nearly every hole at Winged Foot on each course. In order to attack the severely undulating greens and avoid the deep bunkers that guard them, a player must approach from the ideal side of the landing area. Fail to do that and you risk scoring a big number.
Several of the greens are pear-shaped — narrow in the front and wide in the rear, and many slope sharply from back to front. A prime example of this can be seen on the West Course's 10th hole. From an elevated tee, players must hit a mid- or long-iron shot between two gargantuan bunkers on the left and right of the green. The putting surface tilts toward the front of the green, so players closing to cautiously go with a stronger club must then contend with an ultra-fast downhill putt.
The East Course does not get as much attention as the West Course because it has not hosted six major championships. But many locals and members feel it is an equally stern test of golf.
