Who would you choose to design The Walkers Course?

Posted Thursday, January 28th, 2010 at 7:05 pm

David and I have some ideas about who we like for the project – but it would be great to hear from you, so please send us your thoughts.

Please remember – the basic premise is a very fun yet challenging 6,500 yard course that will be very walkable on a 225ish acre site.

    I’ve played two of Pat Ruddy’s links courses in Ireland and it was as much fun as I’ve ever had on a golf course. Spare, minimalist, strategic—-altogether lovely. And I believe he’s done a heathland course or two as well.

    Suggestions: Tom Doak, or John Harbottle.

    Gil Hanse would be a good choice I think.

    Crenshaw/Coores would be my choice. I have the good fortune to be able to play Friar’s Head, Chechesee Creek and Bandon Trails. All superb courses and built to walk.

    There are not better designers today for this type of project. The Walker’s Course is the type of project they believe in.

    Crenshaw, Coore Design. No question.
