Steady Ed Original Designs

Wondering if there are any left in their original form that haven't been re-designed over the years ?

I'm thinking maybe Madeline Bertrand in Niles, MI might still be close to the original.

It's probably close to the original layout, based purely on basket-to-next-tee proximity. I can check to see if anyone at the pro shop knows next time I'm out that way...

What about Maconaquah or Honey Bear in Peru? I'm pretty sure no Steady Ed original's left in MN.

Was Maconaquah even a Steady Ed design?

Honey Bear added a bunch of janky open holes after the back nine...not sure if anything changed from original layout on the first 18 holes, but the overall layout is NOT original if you're counting the added holes.

That was my 1st course played in 1986-ish, the baskets have been upgraded but the pin positions remain the same (except for maybe 17 which was moved a few feet). The woods used to A LOT tighter.

Most of the 1-18 blue tee locations at Sedgley Woods in Philly are Steady Ed's, baskets 2 and 12 were lengthened after the first year though.

From what I understand, Beaver Brook Campground in N. Monmouth ME is pretty close to the original Steady Ed design. I think only one or two pins have been moved (about 20-30 feet longer) in the almost 40 years the course has been in.
