Sean, thanks. Interesting - to my eyes, judging only from a few pics, the mark of a golf course built in that period (as compared to many of the courses you profile that were designed decades earlier) is that they tend be 'canted' up and down instead of left to right, i.e. the fairways tend to go uphill and downhill a lot instead of (at the expense of?) fairways that slope from one side to the other. Don't know if that's true/factual or not, but it seems that way to me....and it seems a bit of a shame, if for no other reason than because it comes off as a rule of thumb, i.e. like a basic principle that designers in that period were loath to break.Peter
