Detailed description of The International Golf Club, Pines Course, CLOSED 2020

The International Golf Club is a 36 hole golf facility located in Bolton, Massachusetts. The facility has two 18-hole golf courses. They are The Pines Course and The Oaks Course. The Pines course is a members-only course. The Oaks course is a Semi-private course, available to members and their guests, tournament and outing play, lodge and event guests, and select times for public play.

The Pines course originally consisted of 66 acres of open farmland converted to a nine-hole course. In 1901, Runaway Brook Golf Club Corporation was founded and purchased the land for $1, thus establishing the formal beginning of The International. In 1954 Bert Suprenant purchased Runaway Brook G.C., then hired Geoffrey Cornish, with input from Francis Ouimet and others, to design the regulation course that exists today. ITT purchased the course in 1961 and six years later renamed the course The International Golf Club. In 1972, Robert Trent Jones Sr. was hired to modify many of the slick greens and challenging bunkers and made it not only the longest course in the world and also one of the most difficult. Ownership was later passed to Starwood Hotels & Resorts, who subsequently sold the club to principal owner Daniel Weadock and limited partner Brian Lynch in 1999.

In 2001, The International added a new course, the Tom Fazio designed masterpiece known as The Oaks.

The Pines is the world's longest golf course, boasting almost 8,400 yards from the legendary Tiger Tees and consistently ranked as the toughest course in the continental US. Play The Pines. But bring your 'A' game.

Tiger tees: par-72, 8,325 yards, 80.0 / 154

Championship tees: par-72, 7,138 yards, 74.7 / 136

Regular tees: par-72, 6,547 yards, 71.7 / 132

Forward tees: par-72, 5,742 yards, 67.4 / 115(M), 72.8 /128(W)

Women's tees: par-72 5,163 yards, 69.2 / 120

The course closed in May 2020.

The Weadock family owns the International, which is home to two private 18-hole courses, and the abutting Twin Springs, a nine-hole public course. The courses reportedly closed because of a bankruptcy filing by the Weadock family.
