The idea of fairness in golf is a topic that has been debated for years. The lead story in issue 44 of Golf Course Architecture looks at whether golf needs to be fair to be good, and a number of golf course architects give their thoughts on the matter.
In the tee box section, we speak to Brian Curley about a new ten-course complex being created in Vietnam, and Drew Rogers discusses his work at Champion Trace GC in Lexington, Kentucky – a course close to the architect’s his heart.
Golfplan’s Jeff Danner provides his insight into the challenges facing public golf facilities, while Lee Strutt and Sharon Singleton-Bruce explain the importance of soil testing as they prepare for renovation work at the Royal Automobile Club in Surrey, England.
Issue 44 also includes reports from Rees Jones’ new design in Mexico, Trilogy Golf Club at Ocala Preserve in Florida, US, and Machrie Golf Links in Scotland.
We also hear from Landscapes Unlimited founder Bill Kubly, who reflects on 40 years in the business.
