Review Week(s): Pinehurst, California and Ontario; Eagles Nest Book

I expect to be at my computer most of the next two weeks working on a book project for Eagles Nest Golf Club, but and I also want to catch up on some course reviews, including reviews of Tobacco Road near Pinehurst, NC; Southern Pines (Elks Course), also near Pinehurst, as well as a review of St. Thomas G&CC outside of London, Ont., and finally Monterey Peninsula’s Strantz re-do near Pebble Beach, California. I’ll also post some of my talk with Canadians Chris Baryla and Graham DeLaet, both of whom make their debuts as members of the PGA Tour this week at the Sony. This might take me the next two weeks to get through.

There’s also significant rumblings of happenings in the Canadian golf business — including one significant personel change that will likely be announced soon, as well as some interesting industry happenings.

It might be snowing and damned cold, but there’s interest in the golf business yet….


On a related note, here are the two proposed covers for the book I’m working on for Eagles Nest Golf Club. Opinions? Comments? I have a preference, but I’d like the perspective of G4G readers.

Cover 1 is a shot from behind the tee of the 10th hole.
