Ever heard of Unioin Bay Golf Links? I didn’t think so — but check out the video and images of Gil Hanse’s latest on Vancouver Island. The video is here for the time being, but I’ll try to find a way to embed it in this post later.
For those that don’t know Hanse, he’s an American designer, a former associate of Tom Doak and recently worked with Ian Andrew to restore Scaboro G&CC in Toronto. He’s also the designer behind Castle Stuart in Scotland, which is highly anticipated.
Like the much discussed Cabot Links in Inverness, NS, Union Bay will have several remarkable holes along the water. Hanse told me it would be similar in some elements to Bandon Trails, the third course at Bandon Dunes Resort, with the difference being the seaside holes. The final handful of holes look remarkable.
