Great to connect with fellow golf course designers at the American Society of Golf Course Architects' Annual Meeting here in Palm Beach County. Congratulations to Alice Dye, the wife of my longtime friend Pete Dye and a wonderful designer herself, on the Donald Ross Award! @asgca1946#asgca#golfcoursedesign
On Wisconsin! That was quite the U.S. Open, our tour of U.S. courses ends with a beauty just over the MN/WI boarder in Hudson, WI. Troy Burne is a Tom Lehman & Hurdzan-Fry designed championship-caliber course and is worth the drive if you are in the area.
Wisconsin is turning into quite the golf state having the second most courses (trailing only California) in the Golf Digest top 100 public courses list! And that doesn’t include Sand Valley.

Given the rocky, steeply pitched terrain, Whistling Rock’s three nine-hole loops— Cocoon, Temple, and Cloud, named for the three signature tea houses that grace them—each has its own its own strategic character and artistic rhythm. That is by design.
I'd be remiss if I didn't post about my first #golfmatch experience on Saturday in the NY-NJ match at beautiful Neshanic. The weather held out for us, and it was a very fun day at a great course. This is literally the only picture I took all day, of No. 1 on the Lake 9, because I was so engrossed in the match, and having a good time with my playing partner. Can't recommends the GolfMatch app enough!
Mr. Tom Doak and I share a favorite hole of his 36* at The Loop. The par 4, 4th hole on the Black Course. If you don't find the left side of the fairway with your drive, you'll leave yourself no view of the green. Find the left side and there is a perfect "chute" of mounds to funnel your ball thru and to the green. The Loop is golf as it should be.
