There’s no denying that at the best of times, golf is a difficult game. Finding the right balance between difficulty and player enjoyment can be a tricky ask for golf course architects. In the lead feature in issue 47 of Golf Course Architecture, Adam Lawrence takes a look at why some courses may be too difficult or too easy to be truly fun.
Also in this issue, we report on the restoration plans for the Donald Ross-designed course at Seminole Golf Club, which is being led by Coore & Crenshaw. We also speak to Tom Fazio about the opening of the Chileno Bay Golf and Beach Club in Mexico, Dr Michael Morrison reveals interesting new information about the ‘sacred nine’ at Royal Worlington and Newmarket Golf Club in Suffolk, UK, while Adam Lawrence pays a visit to GC Herzogswalde in Germany, where architect Christian Althaus and contractor Josef Potter Golf are building a spectacular new course.
