And who were the "Macdonald and James Bray" guys who gave it their blessing?
Joe,Thanks for posting the AZ articles. Before I moved here full time in 2012, I was a frequent winter visitor starting in 1985 for vacations and business. These articles remind me of some experiences from those times. I remember playing Troon North when the pro shop was a trailer. I remember Desert Mountain Renegrade when it was the only course there. I remember the early days of TPC Scottsdale and my first experience at Desert Forest. . I learned about winter overseeding. After seeing the golf rates at Encanto, I should have played there more. In my golf library I have Bill Huffman's book- Arizona's Greatest Courses, Bradley Klein's History of Desert Forest and Joan Fedula's Golf in Scottsdale.
