Aronimink restoring course in time for 2018 PGA Tour event. When famed architect Donald Ross built Aronimink Golf Club, he plotted out a huge green for the 15th hole with a punch bowl-like design, where sloping sides draw the ball to the center of the surface.

Thankfully, before Aronimink embarked last fall and winter on a restoration of the course in Newtown Square, they found a document on which Ross had written down the dimensions of the green. So what was about a 6,000-square-foot surface a year ago has become giant, exceeding 10,000 square feet after 30 feet were added to the back of the already wide green.
