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

The Dogwood Course at Lakewood Golf Club...

It’s very rare for me to struggle to describe in words augmented with photos the true essence of what a golf course offers. Today’s round at Lakewood Golf Club was so much more than tee up ball, hit ball, putt ball. If the nature and the...

Magnolia Grove – Crossings Course...

There are few place that I really want to keep revisiting to play golf as much as Alabama and in particular any of the magnificent courses on the Robert Trent Jones Trail. Begin your round gazing down the fairway on the Par 4 1st with delight...

Southwood Golf Club – Tallahassee...

I’m raring to go, sorry for the selfie. Much like one might expect every art gallery in Paris to be world class so would be the same sentiments golfing in Augusta, Georgia. This is painfully obvious as when you inform people you are bound...

Arrowhead Country Club- Myrtle Beach Marvel

The roles and responsibilities of our extended golf review trips are not limited just to booking golf courses. Myra is completely in charge of all accommodation arrangements. If where we are staying happens to be near a golf course that’s a...
