Historical Video of St. Martins

"St. Martins is among a handful of golf courses in the country which harken back to a gentler time and a game that was wonderfully simple.

 The course wasn’t constructed with state of the art equipment but rather was built by hand.  So it is quite fitting that the work that was performed over the last several months was accomplished with a talented and committed in-house staff.

The St. Martins program has 6 components:

  • Return greens to their original size and shape
  • Reintroduce original bunker positioning and shape while properly constructing them.
  • Re-level all tees and improve irrigation system
  • Fairway re-grassing
  • Reintroduction of perimeter native grasses

I am very thankful to have played a minor role in the polishing of a truly historic gem within the wonderful game of golf."
