GOLF IS A GAME WHERE IT’S SO EASY TO MAKE MISTAKES

We all make mistakes, and golf is a game where it’s so easy to make mistakes. These days it seems to me that people are more judgmental and critical than they used to be. One of the most talked about incidents of last year came when Phil Mickelson hurriedly followed his putt that was speeding on its way to rolling off the green and stopped the ball with his putter at the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills. He knew it was wrong to do that, but it was a spur of the moment reaction which he apologized for at the first opportunity. Mickelson is one of the most honest and accessible players on Tour and it was totally out of […]

So, Lustica Bay Golf Course is completed? Lustica Bay is a golf course project that we at Player Design are very excited to see open. All courses come with their own unique challenges.

A RARE BREED: BLAIR ATHOLL GOLF AND EQUESTRIAN ESTATE

Every now and then, one has to simply take a step back and marvel at a magnificent sight. Blair Atholl Golf and Equestrian Estate is one such experience. Many of the top golf courses in South Africa have one thing in common: they have been designed by the legendary Gary Player. When he took to golf design in 1975, he naturally approached the craft with the same determination and professionalism he displayed in his playing career. Over the years, his design company’s projects have provided unique golf experiences around the world, but there is something rather special about one particular South African golf course that defines the Player brand more than any other. Blair Atholl is built on a piece […]

AMATEURS MUST BE KING TO KEEP GAME GROWING SAYS PLAYER

Amateur golfers need to be made a priority to keep the sport growing even though the professional game is a multi-million dollar industry and getting stronger, Gary Player told Reuters in a frank discourse on the future of the game. “Professional golfers have never played for such enormous money. Some of the pros win in two tournaments what I won in my entire life,” the 18-time Major winner, who turned 83 on Thursday, said in an exclusive interview. “Professional golf is so popular now and Tiger Woods coming back has really given it a shot in the arm. And the Ryder Cup was fantastic. There are so many big events, big attendances, big sponsors, massive money for the players, but […]

THE PEARL OF LA PAZ

For centuries, the Sea of Cortez has served as a rich canvas for explorers, adventurers, fishermen and artists. Separating Baja California from the Mexican continent, the sea (also known as the Gulf of California) runs 700 miles from the tip of Baja California Sur almost to the U.S. border. The gem of the region is a course by Gary Player Design.
