    RIDGEDALE, Mo. -- His business is all about hunting and fishing, so it seems a tad surprising that Johnny Morris is intent on turning this community in the Ozark Mountains of southwest Missouri into a world-class golf destination.

    Morris, the founder of the Bass Pro Shops outdoors chain, is much more comfortable with a fly rod in his hand than a five-iron. But instead of fish, Morris has landed some of golf’s biggest names to design five courses near his renowned Big Cedar Lodge wilderness resort.

    How is this for a list? Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, Gary Player, Bill Coore-Ben Crenshaw and -- drum roll, please -- Tiger Woods, whose Payne’s Valley layout is scheduled to open in 2019.

    (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina) - Even though it's had a facelift and a name change, Pine Lakes GC is still a looker.

    Originally known as Ocean Forest Hotel & CC, the first golf course in this area where more than 100 tracks line the area, Pine Lakes went under the surgeon's knife in the early 2000s to become a fun course where you don't necessarily have to hit it long. From the back deck it measures out at just over 6,600 yards, however that is countered somewhat by the fact it's at sea level.

    Well, OK, the elevation is about 30 feet but in this game, what's 10 yards here and there?

    by Jim Claggett

    Golf courses, for the most part, can be viewed as works in progress.

    There always seems to be something which can be changed from the original design in order to improve the look or simply to keep up with technology as players continue to hit the ball further and sometimes straighter.

  • Take Notah: Begay's Sewailo Course An Oasis In Southwest Tucson

    by Jim Claggett

    Designing a golf course which appeals to the entire golfing community is one of those 'you can't please everyone' types of propositions.

    The latest creation from relatively new course designer Notah Begay fits into that category but the asterisk beside this one is the fact he has taken the building of a golf course in another direction.
