Top 100 Golf Courses "BiteSize" – August 2018

Time waits for no man, or woman. With the FedExCup Playoffs well and truly upon us, it seems inconceivable that earlier this month Brooks Koepka won his second major of 2018 by holding off a resurgent Tiger Woods to claim the 100th PGA Championship. Koepka wins 100th PGA for second major in 2018.

Bellerive Country Club hosted the PGA Championship and M. James Ward interviewed four architects who weighed in with their views of this modern design – Behind the architectural curtain. The same author also says Adios to August and questions whether Mayday can save the PGA? Adios August can Mayday save PGA.

After five months of extensive polling, research and late night deliberations, we’ve finally completed our biennial US Best in State ranking reappraisals which conclude with the release of the three powerful Mid-Atlantic states and the six states that form our New England division. Also this month, our editor tells the story behind a week-long tour of the best courses around Paris and Richard Smith declares that Bandon Dunes is not only for guys.

Review of the Month July 2018 – Myopia Hunt

With a golf course that has the distinction of being the only course in America to have two of the top 100 signature holes in the United States, and a Master of the Hounds who mans the hounds for hunts three seasons of each year, and the oldest continually running polo field in the country, there is a lot to be seen and said about Myopia.
