Macdonald Psychology of Design How deadly dull are two or three holes of the same character when they follow each other! A drive and pitch followed by a drive and pitch is a good deal like serving a watery pudding after a watery soup. - Robert Hunter The Design Process The ability to create is to consider all the problems of a golf course. The architect must visualize the effect his work will produce from all angles of the game. - George C. Thomas Utilizing Natural Features Now and then one finds a hole of real distinction which nature herself has modeled, and to add anything artificial would be a crime. - Robert Hunter
