For instance, Mure Fergusson demonstrated that a course could be cut from the wilds of heathland forest at New Zealand in 1895. This simple enterprise which would today be seen as commonplace, must have set off alarm bells for the likes of other British architects such HS Colt, H Fowler and Dr Mackenzie; for it is Park Jr, along with these men which propelled a revolution in design which is difficult to exaggerate. If one were to add CB Macdonald and T Simpson to that list it might be reasonable to claim that between these six men the canon of golf architecture is encapsulated.
Sunningdale (both courses) is just stunning! Nothing more really needs to be said.
