The Sun's Travis Haney spoke with Tom Fazio, renowned course designer who laid out Caves Valley in the early 1990s. Q: How were you introduced to this property in Baltimore County? A: It was about 12, maybe 13 years ago the first time I visited this property, before it was named Caves Valley. I was surprised it was so close to downtown Baltimore, pretty much in the Beltway area, so that surprised me because most of the new golf facilities tend to be out in rural areas. That impressed me to start with.

The club had sliced its tee shot and landed deep in the rough.Under the original plan, the debt was to be reduced by selling off 34 exclusive residential building lots abutting the Tom Fazio championship golf course.
