‪The downhill par-4 11th and par-3 12th at Sebonack Golf Club, a 2006 collaboration by Tom Doak and Jack Nicklaus, play down into the southwestern corner of the property bordering Peconic Bay. The gorgeous 12th is said to be modeled on the “Postage Stamp” 8th green at Royal Troon.‬

One more shot from our round on Tuesday at Pasatiempo, this one featuring the approach into the 12th that offers a sneak peak at the legendary slopes of the 16th green in the background.

The elevated opening tee shot at Pasatiempo. If you’re traveling to the Bay Area to golf you should make this your southernmost destination to prioritize. If you’re golfing Monterey you should make this your northernmost destination. Either way, don’t miss out on Pasa!

One of my favorite mornings of the year, always fun to wake up early and watch The Open, if you have the chance to play Colorado’s best links golf experience @ballyneal , add it to your list, it is an awesome experience..

‪The 5th green at Old Macdonald at Bandon Dunes - hard to believe but every inch of grass in this photo is part of the putting surface on this Short template green, which is among the biggest and most undulating in American golf. This Tom Doak/Jim Urbina design is wildly fun to play. ‬

Beautiful weather and pristine playing conditions at Pasatiempo yesterday. While I was unable to actually play, I had a lot of fun with @thegolfhawk and @jbecker23_ as the latter experienced his first 18 at this Mackenzie masterpiece. Pictured here is the view into the par-3 15th.

‪By request, a few shots from Lost Dunes Golf Club, a beautiful and fun 1999 Tom Doak design an hour and change northeast of Chicago. LDGC has some of the wildest greens anywhere, and Doak himself is on record as to the accomplishment of finishing a round with no 3-putts.‬

The Countdown to The Open Championship continues: An excerpt from Tom Doak’s The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses: Vol. 1 – Great Britain and Ireland (2014).
“At (Carnoustie’s) 10th (hole) there is the Barry Burn in front of the green, and then the run home from the 13th is one fine hole after another, the last four of which each have the potential to wreck one’s card.”

Very fun to watch the play at Chicago Golf Club on TV. I’ve never been, but seeing the Macdonald/Raynor template holes brings about a familiar feeling.

11 mile hike with the heat index well over 100 🔥...luckily I’m slightly immune to heat only when I’m golfing. (Otherwise, constantly bitching about it 😂) #streamsong #blue #golf #tomdoak #linksouldier #linksoul

‪The 5th through the 8th at Crystal Downs is the equal of any four-hole stretch in golf. The 5th, a hog’s back fairway to a blind green, is among the most memorable par-4s anywhere; the par-4 6th, a dogleg right guarded by the Scabs, is challenging and fun; the par-4 7th, with its approach over a ravine to a wild boomerang green, is entirely unique; and the uphill par-5 8th, its rolling fairway entirely free from bunkers, is among the best three shot holes in the world.‬

Streamsong Blue Hole 7 - 203 yards - par 3
-
-
-
One of the more photogenic holes at Streamsong Blue is the 7th which runs alongside the beautiful 16th from Streamsong Red. The hole plays true to its yardage and the green slopes hard from the right to left. There is a lot of slope you can’t see because of the shrubs, but a shot right of the green will funnel down towards the hole.

Streamsong Blue was designed by one of today’s most prolific architects, Tom Doak. A man who’s catalog of work boasts highly acclaimed courses such as Pacific Dunes, Old Macdonald and Ballyneal. #golfreviews #golfweekmagazine #golfweek #summergolf #floridagolf #streamsongblue #streamsong #golfporn #golfer #golf #golfcoursephotos #golfcourse #golfcoursearchitecture #tomdoak #golfdigest #golfarchitecture #golfweekraters

‪Congratulations to the historic Bel-Air Country Club, which unveiled its Tom Doak restored golf course today. Doak & Co. restored the course to the original 1925 George Thomas design and brought back some iconic features, including Mae West, seen here on the 12th hole.‬ A bold move by the club to restore such a highly regarded course, but that risk has paid off - the course is incredible.

Back at Medinah today! Round #9 for the trip and opted to play Course One at Medinah, the Tom Doak redesign, after playing the championship Course 3 last week. Course One was much more open and with less trees than Course 3, and with some delightful short par 4’s and exquisite par 3’s. A very playable and enjoyable day out there today in the company of assistant pro Nick. Loved being back at such a special club!

‪It’s finally here - the inaugural @USGA United States Senior Women’s Open Championship at the venerable Chicago Golf Club! Tune in to FS1 at 4pm on Saturday and Sunday for coverage. Anyone going to Wheaton this week to watch live and get a peek at this incredible course?‬

‪The 5th through the 8th at Stonewall’s North Course. The par-5 8th (bottom right) plays over two stone walls, one which must be carried from the tee, and another usually carried on the blind, downhill second shot. And who among us doesn’t love playing a shot over a wall? #🐮

‪Biarritz‬
‪First recreated by Macdonald at Piping Rock, the Biarritz template features a large plateau fronted by a swale and bunkered on both sides. Some versions (Yale, Westhampton, St. Louis) are mowed entirely as green; others (Piping Rock, Chicago, Fishers Island, Camargo) are fairway cut in front of and in the swale.‬

Great day with great people at Somerset Hills. Thank you to the Probert’s and Sirbaugh’s for making it happen! #somersethills #awtillinghast #tomdoak #mountainlake #golf #whyilovethisgame

‪Tillie‘s Redan, the par-3 2nd at Somerset Hills Country Club, is one of the best one-shot holes in all of golf. The green severe and unforgiving, but the hole offers options for attack and chances for thrilling recoveries. If you like your golf exciting, you’ll love this hole.‬

Enjoyed playing @riverfrontgolfclub for the first time this morning. A solid Tom Doak design with wide fairways, challenging greens, and several nice views of the Nansemond River. #golf #tomdoak #suffolkva #vsga

Every hole at Ballyneal is a gem. This might be my favorite. The #8 hole is an uphill Par 5 with fairway bunkers that are visible from the tee but can’t be seen when you look back at the fairway from the amazing multi-tiered green. I managed a birdie and a par over the 6 rounds. Not bad for an 18 handicap. #8 #ballyneal #colorado #tomdoak #easterncolorado #golf #top100 #golfcourse #links #snakeeyes #birdie #taylormade #nikegolf #golfing #fairway #green #magical #126holesin4days

While I’ve played others that are ranked higher, there is no other modern golf course I’ve enjoyed playing as much this place. Ballyneal occupies a special place in this golfer’s heart. Pictured here is the devilish par-4 13th.

The subtle yet magnificent 14th green at Somerset Hills. Awesome slopes rolling through this greensite with arguably the most amazing view on the course right off the back edge.

Looking back on an afternoon by the ocean at Pacific Dunes. Happy place. Have a fantastic weekend golfers. Go make some big birds. 🦅

‪Two weeks from today, the inaugural United States Senior Women’s Open Championship kicks off at the historic Chicago Golf Club in Wheaton, IL. This Seth Raynor design rarely gets (or wants) the spotlight, which adds substantial significance to this already important event.‬

Routing map of St Enodoc Golf Club. Amazing #JamesBraid design with #TomDoak @doakgolf advising. Interesting to see the use of triangles in routing the course and the final 6 holes heading eastwardly home.

‪The par-4 7th, par-3 8th and par-5 9th at Sebonack Golf Club, a Tom Doak & Jack Nicklaus joint venture that saw both architects’ design philosophies influence the other. With terrific land movement and gorgeous of Peconic Bay, there are worse places to spend a summer’s day.‬

‪The 9th tee at Somerset Hills Country Club provides a perfect vantage over Tilly’s Redan par-3 2nd (right), the par-3 8th (left) and its fantastic internal contours, and the downhill, running approach to the long par-4 7th. My favorite spot on one of my favorite courses.‬

‪“The Good...,” the par-3 12th at Rock Creek Cattle Company, could aptly if modestly describe this entire 2008 Tom Doak design, which is filled with interesting ground movement, exceptional greensites, a terrific routing and drop-dead gorgeous vistas. One of Doak’s very best.‬

‪Ballyneal, a 2006 Tom Doak design, traces its existence directly to Sand Hills, which proved viable the concept of a remote club. With one of the finest modern courses set in the dramatic chop hills of Colorado, Ballyneal now thrives with one of the best memberships in golf.‬

‪The par-5 12th at Pacific Dunes at Bandon Dunes Resort. This 2001 Tom Doak design among 60-foot cliffside sand dunes solidified Bandon’s reputation as a must-see destination, and is (in my opinion) the best U.S. golf course built since Sand Hills in 1995.‬

‪Piping Rock Club features some of C.B. Macdonald’s best templates, including a brilliant Road Hole (center), his first Biarritz green (left), and one of the greatest Redan par-3s in all of golf (top right). The infamous polo field, frustratingly off limits to Macdonald at the time of his design and now the driving range, is top left, while the long Manhattan skyline and Long Island Sound are above.‬

‪A lovely morning at Somerset Hills, a personal favorite. Every time I have the privilege of playing here, I find new things to love about the golf course. In my opinion, SHCC has A.W. Tillinghast’s best set of par-3s, including the Redan 2nd and the Eden 16th, pictured here.‬
