Concord 2020 - Architects Notes

Part Two of Three

 

After wrapping the master plan we were examining a collection of William Flynn drawings. We came across Flynn’s plans for Brinton Lakes Country Club, now known as Concord Country Club.  After some discussion with our friends about how Ross was getting credit for this course Jim Nagle remarks, “this appears to be a Flynn course.”

Part Three of Three

The stewards of Donald Ross History at the Given/Tuft’s Library and Archives in Pinehurst had no record of any Ross plans for Brinton Lakes nor Concord.  Based on the William Flynn plans for Brinton Lakes in hand, the collective genius of the occupants in that room agreed that Concord was a Flynn design. 

 

The team reconfigured the master plan and since that day, the steady improvements to Concord have restored the superb qualities of Mr. Flynn's work. 

 

Next up? Revival of “The Great Hazard”.
