Many high profile, former major winning golfers turn their hands to the lucrative world of course design.

But are they really the best people to design new golf courses?
Golf Refugees would argue they are exactly the wrong people. No doubt they are very knowledgeable about shot creation and what constitutes a challenging golf course for professional golfers.
But wait a minute. The vast majority of people who enjoy and play golf are at best ‘average’ golfers.

We therefore conclude that unless you desire a golf course for future consideration for a major championship. The best people to design your new golf course are rubbish golfers.

Lee Travino, one of our favourite golfers, thinks there is no need to build golf courses longer than 6,900 yards. And greens should be open at the front, to allow golfers to bump and run the ball onto the green. That’s more like it.
