Sultan's Run course history

Sultan's Run Golf Course: It was only a few years ago that this lush land was home to Supreme Sultan, a horse of history and literally a legend in his own time. It was over these hills and valleys of picturesque beauty that Supreme Sultan sired a record number of World Champion American Saddlebred horses. No place on earth can lay claim to this record.

Now, this same ground recalls the heritage of Supreme Sultan just as an engraved stone marks each unique and challenging tee box, memorializing the name of one of these World Champions. From its very beginning, this land was destined for greatness, but few would have predicted the creation of a world class golf course that would entice champions of the links.

Sultan's Run embarked on an extensive remodeling project in 1996, taking the golf course to the pinnacle of public golf. Designer Tim Liddy, a disciple of world renowned architect Pete Dye, took what God had laid out and what the course already offered, and enhanced it.

All 18 holes at Sultan's Run Golf Course have been beautified in some shape or form from entirely new bunkering and reconstructed greens, to complete rework of several holes. The end result is that Sultan's Run has become a world class golf facility that golfers will talk about long after their round is done.
