Good luck to them.

It's a hot bed these days, Darmor, The Covey, new Chet Williams at Big Easy Ranch, The Falls is back too.


BTW I wouldn't say it's halfway between Houston and San Antonio, I live in West Houston and am 40 minutes from there, it's not quite a suburb yet but I know plenty of folks who commute from there.

I'm looking forward to the completion of 7 Mile Beach -  Hobart, Tasmania. They are schedule to open later half of 2024. I've been following their Twitter account, some great photos of build and progress.

We seeded the last hole - the long par 5,3rd - last week and Mike DeVries is on his way home (via the South Island of New Zealand) after the best part of two years living in Hobart.
It was a massive commitment to Mat Goggin's 25-year dream to make a good course in the city he grew up playing.

Please give us an update on Warmouth Sands!

Jeff,Warmouth is back on track and 6 holes shaped...irrigation has begun...it was coordinated with a new US Highway 1 Bypass that got delayed for over 6 months and therefore any dirt coming needed from highway could not be gotten.  All good.  Fall line is the one that I would have thought Links may have mentioned but did not...

Mike,


   Thank you for the update. It's always a delight to see a course having an organic connection to the community. Lastly, 7 Mile's social media is the best I've seen for any project. Kudos to the entire team.

Pierre,


All run by Mat - who has done a brilliant marketing job without spending any money on it.
He followed the Richard Sattler/Barnbougle model - which was basically, "If the course is good enough it'll sell itself"
Of course, having photogenic holes helps -  a lot!
