Check the yardage book: Liberty National for the Northern Trust

·6 min read

Liberty National, site of this week’s Northern Trust as part of the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup Playoffs, was designed by the team of Tom Kite and Bob Cupp and opened in 2006.

Liberty National has been home to the Northern Trust, formerly known as the Barclays, since 2009. Heath Slocum held off the group of Tiger Woods, Ernie Els, Padraig Harrington and Steve Stricker to win that first year.

After that first Tour event there, much of the course was reworked. Several greens were rebuilt, and many of the fairway landing areas were recontoured or widened to make them more playable. But one thing that hasn’t changed: the incredible views of New York and the Statue of Liberty.

Thanks to yardage books provided by Puttview – the maker of detailed yardage books for more than 30,000 courses around the world – we can see exactly the challenges that players face this week. Check out each hole below.
