So good of Mr. B to bring this back. My goodness: from photos, no other American golf course captures so well the essence of a great GB&I course. I don't know the history or early 'narrative' of Shinnecock very well, so I don't know if the 'reference' to GB&I was intended or not. But while there have been many famous and highly praised 'homages' to classic British courses built in America over the decades, and several well-documented 'study tours' undertaken there by American architects past and present, to my eyes no architect and no other course save Shinnecock has gotten the spirit quite right, or captured the ethos so convincingly and so (seemingly) unselfconsciously. It strikes me as a rare example of both minimalism and naturalism, seemlessly combined/melded.
