Years in the industry: 21
Key courses: Deer Creek GC, Ajax, Ont.; Black Diamond GC, Pontypool, Ont. (co-design with Jason Miller)
Recent work: Bellemere Winds GC, Keene, Ont.
- A course owner and designer, Lally has worked relatively consistently for decades on budget golf designs.
- His work at Deer Creek in Ajax is popular with weekend hackers.
- Strange routing tendencies, especially on the plain front nine at Black Diamond GC, did not do a lot to demonstrate Lally’s abilities.
- Little if any brand recognition.
- His courses serve an important function in the market, but how many people know that Lally designed Fawn Brook or Kawartha Downs?
What’s possible?: More of the same. Expect Lally to continue to work on budget designs around Ontario.

Jack and Dan have been around a long time. i played golf at Dentonia when i was 13 50 years ago. i then started to play at the Willows while they were there. Now i play at Hawthorne Valley and found out Jack designed it 20 years ago. Unfortunately the owner passed away a couple of years ago.Please say hello to these great guys.
thanks Ken Caverley
