It seems as though every golf course has one or two (or eighteen) greens that are in desperate need of modification. As Golf Course Architiect Michael J Benkusky explains in his blog, this may be a simple task to a soil green, but a USGA green is a different story.

Golf is struggling...we all know that. There are a few things that keep coming up as to how we can get our game back. One common theme is affordability and that must start with course design. The Golf Course As Art website has posted a video on the subject in a video from the 2012 Symposium On Affordable Golf.

As most have heard by now, the Bear Mountain Golf Course is planning to remove 9 holes from the Mountain Course in order to make room for more housing. As the Times Colonist has recently posted, this will not happen without a fight.

I am certain that there are many Superintendents out there that look at there golf courses and other pieces of property differently than most do. I know I look at just about any piece of land and think about how I would or could fit in 9 or 18 holes. In his article "A Great Walk In China" Sam Sakocious talks about a meeting he had with some the great designers of today and how they look at the land.

Just about anyone I know who plays golf is familiar with Pete Dye. Most recently the Pete Dye designed Ocean Course at Kiawah Island played host to the PGA Championship. I was able to find an interesting interview from the Going for the Green website and have posted it here.
