As you probably know, Gary Player is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in the history of golf. He won the 1965 U.S. Open at the age of 29, and became the only non-American to win all four majors, now referred to as the career Grand Slam. In fact, Player was the third golfer in history to win the Grand Slam, following Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen. Only Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods have won the Grand Slam since then.
As a renowned golf course architect, he has more than 325 design projects on 5 continents throughout the world.
As the world’s most traveled golfer, Player was able to use his wisdom and talent to provide a challenging course for the most capable golfer. Yet, the clever layout provides the high handicapper a very fun round. When you couple the charm of Blackmoor Golf Club with its truly hospitable staff and inviting facilities, it's plain to see why Blackmoor will become a “must-play” for your group year after year.
Over his career, Player accumulated an incredible nine major championships on the regular tour and six Champions Tour major championship victories, as well as three Senior British Open Championships on the European Senior Tour.
Gary Player has won 165 tournaments on six continents over six decades and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974.
