Did Colt write about Pine Valley ?Not sure I remember from past years what was said in that regard.
"Colt always regarded the course as one that he (and presumably Alison) designed. He included it in the company's ads through until the 1930s. In contrast, he did drop other courses that from his ads that he had worked on, where there was a potential conflict of interests:"Despite what Colt thought in that vein the facts are the facts and they are documented and undeniable now.
And yet, I'm not sure the designers/architects themselves -- including the famous amateur-sportsmen -- would agree with me. That is, time and again I read about how those designers/architects for months and years worked on (and revised) the bunkers and other hazards. In short, they seemed to feel that the overall quality and even greatness of their courses had quite a lot to do with the quality of the hazards -- or at least more to do with it than I do now, looking back.
