Article about it in the current NYT/Athletic. Strong likelihood that it is much better than its name.

Thereís a positive connotation! The property was a phosphate mine and the tees are marked by horseshoe-like things resembling chain links. ďBall and ChainĒ would be ballsy. ďThe Chain of EventsĒ? ::)

A nice article, with some quotes from Andy Johnson.


The Chain looks pretty cool, actually.


Although I question how realistic it will be for 19-hole, municipal, par-3 courses built in a similar manner? Hope I'm wrong.

From the article:

"Based on Johnsonís explanation of golf course architecture top-down composition, maybe weíll see the success of courses like The Chain finally spur local municipalities and private developers into renovating pre-existing, nondescript public courses into alternative short courses."




For some context, here is a relatively quick list of recent municipal/community-oriented short/shorter courses whose development predates the building of The Chain:


2009 - CommonGround Golf Course - Short Course
2014 - Goat Hill Park
2015 - Rockwind Community Links - Li'l Rock
2016 - Winter Park 9
2016 - Braemar - Academy Course
2017 - San Pedro
2021 - Belmont Golf Course - Little Bell
2022 - East River 9
2022 - The Glen Golf Park
*2023 - PGA Frisco - The Swing/The Dance Floor (*still at a resort but also some community programming)
2023 - West Palm Golf Park


While Andy is right that architects and municipalities have definitely been inspired by what's gone on at private clubs and resorts re: short courses, the article's suggestion that The Chain is going to be the course that "finally" kicks off this trend in muni golf is not supported by facts or recent history. Par-3 and executive-length golf courses have been part of municipal golf for decades.

Cal, it's being called a "short course": "...on this card, a glaring omission. No par. Just play. Have a match against a friend. Grab a couple of clubs, a few beverages, and go. Winner of each hole decides where to tee off on the next hole. You can play a six-hole loop that circles a lovely grove of oak trees. Or play a 13-hole loop. Or play all 19. Who cares?"
