How Golf Was Meant to be Played
“The ideal golf green is as nature laid it out ~ not as poor mortals make it.”
“The great advantage of laying out a course (on land, not on paper) by a competent man is that he can place the holes not only at a proper and suitable distance apart, but that he can take advantage of every feature that presents itself on the ground.”
“There is no better test of golf than on the natural green, on the gentle slope of a hill, but alas and alack. Such greens are but seldom found, and when discovered old golfers are known to embrace them with rapture.”
Herbet Tweedie, Original Architect of Record
Restoring a Classic
"I consider myself a lay of the land architect, and a restoration like Flossmoor was inline with my ideals."
“Flossmoor was definitely the plum project of my renovation/restoration work, and as far as the course goes, it should stand on its own with the top courses in the country.”
“I felt the incredible history and tradition of the club which has been preserved over 100 years. The routing was good and the green complexes were outstanding. Going back to old style bunkers brought it all together.”
Raymond Hearn, Current Architect of Record - 2009 Renovation Restoration
