The Golf Club at Black Rock 22/02/2012

3rd Idaho - Best in Area

National (Old) 26/03/2010

9th Victoria - Best in Area 15th Australia Ranking 20th Oceania Ranking

Barwon Heads 26/03/2010

15th Victoria - Best in Area 29th Australia Ranking 38th Oceania Ranking
For me, Barwon Heads was the surprise of my trip. This was reminiscent of a traditional British links course and even the clubhouse felt homely and traditional. Why can’t...

3rd North Carolina - Best in Area 54th USA Ranking 61st North America Ranking
By some considerable distance, this is Tom Fazio’s finest design. The routing of the course is incredible given the setting and green sites are at times jaw dropping. I’v...

Hawktree 09/09/2009

2nd North Dakota - Best in Area
I’m a big fan of Engh’s work and Hawktree is one of his best, although Tullymore for me is better. The course feels and looks so natural, poured over the landscape. The b...

Black Mesa 09/09/2009

3rd New Mexico - Best in Area
Not as good as the hyperbole I’m afraid but Black Mesa is relatively cheap and is entertaining. The main problem for me is that it doesn’t flow very well as a course. You...
