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

Westin Savannah Harbor Golf and Spa Resort

The lengthy list of golf courses designed and built by the legendary Bob Cupp is as impressive a  catalog of any golf course designer in history. This also includes numerous redesigns and renovations. There is a certain exclusive pedigree...

Palmetto Dunes Resort – Robert Trent...

Located a mere mile apart does not mean that two courses look or play the same. In spite of being located in the gorgeous confines of The Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort our Monday venue The George Fazio Course and The Robert Trent Jones...

Lake Presidential Golf Club, Maryland

When you are 3,000 miles from home and in an area for the first time, choosing where to golf is not always a successful decision.  One way I decide is by looking for golf courses managed by successful management companies like Troon Golf...
