For all you Colt & Alison fans (Hurdzan included).... Anthony Gholz has now released his latest book "Colt & Alison in North America: Golf Course Architects". Summary interview available on @GolfClubAtlas https://t.co/qZwV4Y1ew5
Received a copy of @HurdzanGolf’s and @RonWhittenGD’s latest collaboration. This book instantly leaps to the front of the reading line.
"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers (postmen) from the swift completion of their appointed rounds". Golf architects too? Hurdzan indicated by red arrow.
1989. Cornish & Silva. One sketch per green complex. Instructive, attractive and thought provoking.
This is cool. @BidGreenJacket. https://t.co/0KupkqPmWN
Some get cookies. Other's get fresh fruit. Hurdzan gets greens mix samples from a soil blending facility in New Jersey. Merry Christmas 😎
#TBT Flashback to the 1985 @ASGCA Annual Meeting, which traveled to Ireland for the first time. Mike Hurdzan (front row, center) served as President. ASGCA founding member Robert Trent Jones is shown at the right end of the second row. @HurdzanGolf
DID YOU KNOW? The restoration of Pinehurst No. 2 by @coorecrenshawsaw saw a reduction in maintained area, amounting to some 36 acres, over the near 150 acre course; yet widening some fairways by as much as 50%.
