Thoughts and writing on the world of golf and golf course architecture.

Canada's best golf courses

A couple of notable associates along with myself have created a Top 25 Courses in Canada list for Golfclubatlas.com, the fine golf architecture site. The list is significantly different from Score magazine’s recent list — and...

Vijay Singh's caddie: "It was...

No shock that Vijay Singh isn’t the most liked golfer in the world. But apparently, according to Dave “Buddy” Renwick, his caddie for the 18 months leading into this season, the world’s No. 1 golfer isn’t a very...

David McLay Kidd — in Oregon, San Fran

David McLay Kidd, the delightful Scottish golf architect who created the wonderful Bandon Dunes in Oregon, appears to have a busy year ahead of him. He’s apparently working on another course in Oregon, the 7th course at St. Andrews and...
