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
