Seth Raynor was an American golf course architect and engineer. He designed approximately 85 golf courses in about 13 years, his first in 1914, at age 40. His mentor was Charles Blair Macdonald, the creator of the National Golf Links of America, and a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame.
Raynor was also the mentor of Charles Banks who completed many of Raynor’s unfinished works after he died. Banks went on to a solo design career, creating approximately 15 courses.
