We're set to open the course for preview play in September (we're in Aiken, SC). Just holler if you want to come and visit and enjoy the benches.




This thread prompted a pretty hearty discussion between Brian/Blake, John Lavelle, Chase Watson, and others on our team. The consensus was that a few strategically placed benches (e.g. 4, 9, 11, and the left tees on 14) that aren't eyesores or disturbances for the maintenance team would be good additions, particularly if we're promoting a walking culture.

As an aside, it's pretty amazing how often posts on this website have sparked conversations amongst our own team at Old Barnwell about our approach to things large and small.


It makes my day to find out a thread I posted here led to action somewhere in the real world.  I donít know where Old Barnwell is but I hope to enjoy one of your benches some day.

You only THINK you know minimalism.
