Eric Iverson has certainly packed his references list, working with Pete Dye at Dye Design and ending up with Tom Doak at Renaissance Golf. Between those two career stops, he managed to find some time to create a course of his own at Staley Farms, north of Kansas City.
It’s not difficult to spot the first first boss’s influence all over the work at Staley, whether it’s in the form of double-dogleg par fives or the No. 10 par three, which plays close enough to a Redan without fully being a Redan. It’s no surprise that Doak, himself a former Dye associate, picked up Iverson to join his team. If Iverson never gets around to doing another solo design, he can take solace knowing that Staley Farms is a highly-regarded effort.
