"Quick, Quick, Slow: How to Beat Slow Play"

"Quick, Quick, Slow: How to Beat Slow Play," an article appearing in Golf Course Architecture Magazine, July 2007, written by the magazine's editor Adam Lawrence. The article cites Bill Yates' strategies for working with golf course architects to design an optimal pace of play into a new or redesigned course.


[excerpt]  "...Yates happened to be in St Andrews during the design stage of the new Castle Course at St Andrews and was asked to consult by architect David McLay Kidd (photo, left). 'David Kidd proposed two routings,' said Yates, (photo, right), 'and I had a look at them and ran some simulations. I concluded that one particular routing would be easier to manage over the years and would produce a better flow of play.'"    --Author Adam Lawrence
