Score’s latest issue, with its Best New Course feature, is just now hitting courses around the country. This feature used to only occur every two years when the magazine did its Top 100 issue. After some discussion about the fact some courses could be up to three years old by the time they qualified as “Best New,” Score’s editors decided to make a change.
So this year there’s a “Best New Course in Canada” award that is separate from the Top 100, which will appear next year.
And the winner is … envelope please!
Humber Valley (River Course) — Designer: Doug Carrick
This is certainly one of Carrick’s best efforts, and I wrote about the course two weeks ago in my Score golf column. My review of the course is here. Concisely put, this is a special course in a special place and is surely one of the best in the country, even now. Its reputation will only grow.
