Livin’ in America

Well, not quite living. Adam is making his third (and hopefully last) visit of the year to the US this week, starting on Thursday. He’s flying to Chicago and then connecting to Traverse City, MI, where he is going to Arcadia Bluffs to see the new South course that is currently growing in, designed by architect Dana Fry — a very close friend.

Then it’s to the other side of the lake to pay another visit to Sand Valley in Wisconsin. Second time there this year; this time the focus is on seeing David Kidd’s Mammoth Dunes, the second course at the resort, with David.

After SV, Adam will go, with David, to Los Angeles, to take a look at his new Rolling Hills course, and hopefully catch up with a few California-based chums. Then, ho for home!

And who knows, there might be a few more course visits along the way.

Golf Industry Show, San Antonio

We are delighted to announce that Oxford Golf Consulting will be exhibiting at the annual Golf Industry Show, to be held next February in San Antonio, Texas.

GIS is the biggest and best gathering of the golf course industry anywhere in the world. Adam has been attending as a journalist for over a decade, but this will be his first visit as an exhibitor in his own right. All at OGC are excited at this great opportunity, and look forward to meeting friends old and new in Texas next February.

Pell-Mell and Woodcote

Adam’s article on the Royal Automobile Club’s two golf courses at Woodcote Park in Surrey was recently published in Pell-Mell and Woodcote, the RAC’s member magazine.

This is a new and prestigious title for us, and one we are delighted to have contributed to. The production of the article involved a very early start one morning, walking the property at dawn with Lee Strutt, the RAC course manager, an old friend, then, later interviewing director of golf Jason Neve.

Notwithstanding the antisocial hours involved, it was a pleasure to work with Lee, Jason and the rest of the RAC team, and we wish them the very best.
