Donald Ross and Royal Dornoch

Donald Ross (1872 – 1948) designed more than 600 golf courses in his legendary career.  But it was Royal Dornoch where he grew up and learned his trades as a green keeper.  A Visit to Dornoch from the Donald Ross Society website.

Watching the final round of the PGA Fedex Playoffs Barclays Championship, which this year is hosted by Plainfield Country Club in New Jersey.  Plainfield is one of many championship caliber courses in the U.S.  We are more familiar with the famous Pinehurst No. 2, Aronimink, Seminole Golf Club, Oak Hill and Oakland Hills, all of which have hosted major championships.

We are very familiar with Donald Ross golf courses here at home.  From the Donald Ross Society list of his courses:

  • Brightwood, Dartmouth, N.S.
  • White Point Beach, Liverpool, N.S.
  • Algonquin, St. Andrews, N.B.  The original design was plowed over and changed in 2000
  • Riverside, Rothesay, N.B., where Bari apprenticed as a club professional.
