Matt Ginella and Jason Straka talk golf course architecture
January 3, 2019
New golf course construction has slowed way down in the last decade or so. Brand new courses are still coming online, though, and one of the most acclaimed openings from 2018 was the South Course at Arcadia Bluffs in Michigan. Matt Ginella recently spoke with golf course architect Jason Straka of Fry/Straka Global Golf Course Design, the firm responsible for the South Course. The architects drew inspiration from one of the world’s greatest courses, but this project was not without risk.
Architect Gil Hanse joins Golf Channel's Damon Hack on Morning Drive to discuss the news his firm will renovate the Champions Course at Omni La Costa Resort near San Diego. He also discusses what he has in common with the original architect Dick Wilson and also his latest thoughts on the distance debate.
