New Score Column: How the Open Ended Up at Angus Glen

For those that want to put down Angus Glen’s North Course, I’ll say this — no one in the field is badmouthing it this week. It may not be Hamilton, but I think the players genuinely like it.

But if you want to know why the event is at Angus Glen, and you want to understand where it might be headed, check out my latest Score Golf column here.

  • Why re-invent the wheel. Let’s set up a rotation like the British.

    Let’s pick our 4 best classic courses – Atlantic (Highlands), Quebec (Royal Montreal), Ontario (Hamilton) and West Shaughnassey). The West wold be last in rotation in hopes we can get away from the British – extra 3 hours in jet lag a killer. Commit to 2 full rotations.

    Once we’re established again, add 3 floating sites to the rotation (from a pool of 6 or 9 courses) settling at 7 cycle.

  • Sheldon – Nice theory but how are you going to actually get people out to Highlands. It is a great course but couldn’t handle an Open. This is precisely the reason that a course like Royal Dornoch has never held the Open Championship.
