GLENARBOR GOLF CLUB REOPENS FOLLOWING BUNKER RENOVATION PROJECT

A bunker renovation project has been completed at GlenArbor Golf Club near Bedford Hills, New York. Work was led by Senior Designer, Jeff Lawrence from Gary Player Design, and commenced in early 2017 with the project reaching completion early this month. GCA spoke to Jeff Lawrence of Gary Player Design to find out more about the work. “GlenArbor is a course designed by Gary Player Design, and we have a great relationship with the client,” Lawrence said. “It was a collective effort by ownership and GPD to recognize the bunkers needed work so we embarked on a bunker study to identify the best method to update the bunkers in a meaningful and sustainable way.” Lawrence and the project team discussed the […]

OPEN LEGEND VISITS SOUTHPORT SCHOOL

Three-time Champion Golfer of the Year Gary Player was reunited with the famous Claret Jug trophy today on a surprise visit to St Philip’s Church of England Primary School in Southport. Fifteen-hundred schoolchildren from five schools in Sefton will come face-to-face with one of the most iconic trophies in sport this week and for the pupils of St Philip’s, the experience included the opportunity to talk with an Open Champion.

ROBERT TRENT JONES JR. CONTINUES TO DISRESPECT THE USGA, GOLF AND GARY PLAYER

As we approach the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills, the aftermath of most players’, but especially Gary Player’s, criticism of Chambers Bay, the 2015 venue, has now unfortunately been raised yet again by Robert Trent Jones Jr. nearly two years later. Following an interview by John Strenge with Jones Jr., Golf Digest published an article in which the course designer once again called out the Black Knight for saying what seemed to be on every golfer’s, fan’s, and journalists’ mind when Chambers Bay hosted the U.S. Open – the high standard expected for a USGA Major Championship course was simply not up to par. The Black Knight was in attendance on the USA’s West Coast for the region’s first U.S. Open, […]

WORLDWIDE CONSENSUS: MAKE GARY PLAYER’S SENIOR BRITISH OPEN MAJOR CHAMPIONSHIPS OFFICIAL

Credit to Bernhard Langer. His tear through the Senior Tour the last nine years gives life to the debate over whether the PGA Champions Tour in the USA will ultimately and officially recognize Gary Player’s three Senior Open victories as Majors. The key word in the matter is consistency. Every Major Championship on the Regular and Senior Tour is counted by the US PGA Tour as a Major from its inception. Their only exception is the Senior Open Championship, in which 16 championships (1987-2002) are not “officially” considered Majors. This is where they are inconsistent. Here they slight greats like Gary Player and Sir Bob Charles. Golf media and personalities around the world reacted positively to the Black Knight’s interview […]
