DRIVIN’ ROUND THE MOUNTAIN

Gary Player Mountain Top Course at Big Cedar Lodge: The Mountain Top Course moniker of Gary Player’s new short course is justified, as the 13-hole layout plays over and around a bluff that provides dramatic views of the nearby Tom Fazio-designed Buffalo Ridge Springs course, as well as Ozark National and Payne’s Valley, two 18-hole championship courses currently under construction and designed by Coore & Crenshaw and Tiger Woods, respectively. “The routing of this course is what makes it special,” Player explains. “You can play all 13, but if you want a quick one-hour game with your children, it’s simple to play a few holes and then go enjoy the rest of your day.” The 13 par-3 holes play as […]

ELVIS MUSIC AT THE COURSE? IT’S NOW OR NEVER FOR ‘BORING’ GOLF, ADMITS PLAYER

Player, now in his 80s, has shown the value of keeping up his fitness after retirement. For those who think golf is a game for old men with woolly jumpers and woollier thinking, Gary Player strikes a refreshingly radical note. “Is golf boring?” the 82-year-old asked in response to the YouGov survey that said the British public found it the dullest of all sports. “Well, to put it simply, yes. I may take flak for this but it’s true.” Player, the winner of nine major championships and the game’s elder statesman after the passing of Arnold Palmer in 2016, believes solutions include Elvis Presley, short-form games and a tennis-like world tour. He called on young people to come forward with […]
