- 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.
