A Short History of Championship Golf Courses

Posted by John Hughes on May 16, 2016 6:00:00 AM

Even since Old Tom Morris won the first Open Championship in 1861, the game of golf has evolved tremendously, and so have the venues on which the game is played. Back then, Morris shot 163 over three 12-hole rounds at the Prestwick Golf Club, which to this day still holds up to the modern game.

Golf courses have not always had 18 holes. The St. Andrews Golf Links occupy a narrow strip of land along the sea, and as early as the 15th century, golfers at St. Andrews established a trench through the undulating terrain, playing to holes whose locations were dictated by topography.

How Southern California Golf is Different

Posted by John Hughes on Apr 13, 2016 11:51:05 AM

A round of golf is never the same twice. Each course has its own character, design, flow and is full of nuances. Some courses are more appealing than others. Just as each course is different, so it is possible for entire regions to distinguish themselves, to carve out a unique space in the golfing world.

Nowhere is this truer than in Southern California. Bounded north to south by Los Angeles and San Diego, east to west by ocean and desert, this remarkable zone brings depth of play, unique settings and a variety of golfing experiences unlike any other.
