The centerpiece of The Legend at Bergamont development is a world-class 7,330 yard 18 hole championship golf course designed by 2 Time US Open Champion Andy North. Asphalt cart paths connect all of the holes, allowing for increased access to the course in wet conditions. The dual-ended Golf Practice Range as well as the Practice Putting Green and Chipping Green allow players to hone their skills before heading out for a round on the beautiful course. Bent grass greens, tees, and fairways and dramatic elevation changes add to the allure of the golf course and contributed to its recognition as one of Golf Digest’s “Top 10 New Courses in America” in 2006.
A two-time U.S. Open champion, Andy North has designed more than a dozen golf courses, including The Legend at Bergamont.
North began playing golf in 1963 after a degenerative knee condition forced him to give up playing other sports. As an amateur, he won numerous golf tournaments, including the 1969 Wisconsin Amateur and the 1971 Western Amateur. After graduating from the University of Florida in 1972, he qualified for the PGA Tour.
North won his first PGA tournament at the Westchester Classic in 1977 and followed that with a victory at the 1978 U.S. Open at Cherry Hills. In 1985, he joined an elite group of golfers when he won a second U.S. Open, this time at Oakland Hills.
A member of the 1985 Ryder Cup team, North joined the Senior PGA Tour in 2000. Since 1992, he has served as a golf analyst for ESPN, and in 2003 he wrote “The Long and Short of It”, a golf book published by St. Martin’s Press.
In addition to The Legend at Bergamont, North has designed or co-designed Trapper’s Turn Golf Club in Wisconsin Dells and The General at Eagle Ridge in Galena, Illinois, among others.
