Golf is not a fair game, so why build a course fair?
The ardent golfer would play Mount Everest if somebody would put a flagstick on top.
When you build a golf course, I always use the example of Pebble Beach. If you took the ocean away from the 18th hole, it's a good golf hole. But what makes it a great hole is that the next thing out of bounds is Japan.
It's always fun to have a professional tournament come to your golf course.
It's a different world when you are out on the courses. A different world altogether.
I don't think any of us really thought of the 17th hole. It just kind of arrived. We just kept digging. Actually, I think my wife, Alice, came out one day, looked at the area and said let's just make it an island green.
