History

Bonneville was originally built as a 9-hole course in 1929, that design is credited to William Henry Tucker, an Englishman who migrated to the United States and began laying out courses beginning in the 1920s. Tucker was renowned as a turf-grass expert, eventually moving west before settling in New Mexico where he lived until his death in 1954.

The “new” Bonneville was re-designed from the old Tucker layout by the renowned William Park “Billy” Bell along with his son, William Francis Bell. The father and son team only co-designed a handful of courses. These dual projects followed WWII as the younger Bell began assuming responsibilities for the firm’s work while the elder Bell began taking it easier. William P. Bell is best known for his celebrated work at Bel-Air and Riviera (Los Angeles) with George C. Thomas, Jr., and later as the co-designer of Torrey Pines (San Diego) along with his son.

Bonneville’s 18-holes were designed in the same general time as Torrey Pines, although the full 18-holes at Torrey Pines did not get built until 1956-57. The second nine at Bonneville came along in 1959, finishing the Bell’s vision for the course.
