I was fortunate enough to spend a day at Old Town Club in North Carolina yesterday. Aside from a great day with my host, I also bumped into Dunlop White (not sure if he still hangs about these parts).
To your question on other great sets of greens, the ones at OTC werenít like other Golden Age courses Iíve seen. Granted, Iíve not seen any Maxwell work aside from CD, but the shaping was more reminiscent of a modern minimalist in many places, maybe because of the use of central mounds to form bowls and tilt. Thatís why I asked if C&C had taken creative license? If not, then Maxwell is clearly a huge influence on the current crop.
The current greens are, for the most part, a USGA profile/ interpretation implemented by Bob Cupp around 1995. The double green of 8 and 17 is C&C. There isnít any original Maxwell greens any more, but theyíre still very good.
Nice! How long are you over here?
