Our regularly scheduled program will return!

Sorry all, I’ve been busy with the book I’m working on with former Tim Hortons’ owner Ron Joyce. That’s kept me from thinking much about the golf world, but after a week of interviewing, I’ll actually have some time to post some blogs, including a review of Seguin Valley and some more on September’s trip to Ireland.
In the meantime, there’s a neat debate going on about Sebonack, the private course next to Shinnecock, which just opened. It was supposed to be designed by Jack Nicklaus, but the owner changed his mind and determined he’d rather have Tom Doak, the designer behind Pacific Dunes, do the work. In order to come to some sort of agreement with Nicklaus, he agreed to have the Golden Bear remain on the project. Anyway, Ron Whitten at Golf Digest has a story on the course in the December issue, and that’s stirred up a lot of debate at Even Doak has entered the fray. That Internet — great for getting some good ol’ personal animosity going….
