Dismal River (Red) - Tom Doak 2013
When the opportunity arises, golf construction can be rather simple. In great sandy ground like that at Dismal River, all that was needed on 95% of the grounds was some tilling and trap-raking. With clever routing and restraint, Tom Doak and the team maximized the potential of the land. This was the first project I was involved with as part of Renaissance Golf Design, getting my first taste of running a bulldozer while mostly handling finish work and being on site at both the very beginning and the very end.
