Owner and designer of Dogwood Hills Golf Resort and Gardens, Bryce Slater, and his wife, Doris, moved onto the land that would become Dogwood Hills in 1974 and spent 3 years clearing trees and shaping the front nine. Along the way, they sold a vein of coal off land that today is the back nine and grew tomatoes in the fairways to help finance their dream.
Today, at 76, Slater still has no “Off” switch. He continues to keep the course beautifully conditioned with the help of a very limited crew.
