Ask John Houck about Course Design & Development
 
Hi, everybody,

Several DGCR users have asked if John could answer questions about course design. John is very touched by this request and would like to participate on this thread regularly in spite of his very busy schedule. As his business partner, I will be helping with this thread in getting the questions answered directly from him.

Please feel free to ask questions pertaining to course design, his courses, and course development. We are committed to promoting good course design principles and we will do our best to help you with the answers.

We are looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks for your support.

Dee & John Houck

Houck designed my home course. Did a pretty good job considering what he had to work with. Glad we've got this thread and I'm looking forward to the discussion that goes down.

When is John going to play a PDGA event so he can get a player rating? :)

John-

Which design element is worse in your eyes:

The "walking trail" fairway
-or-
The "we didn't remove ANY trees" random fairway

Would you consider a course that has a scoring spread of 12-16 strokes for an average player a course with too much luck factor to be considered a good course?

So far no courses in Southern California. But John was born there and he'd love to do one!

Hey Chuck! Been there. Done that. John sends you a BIG hug.
So do I. He says, " Maybe when I turn 60." :-) Dee
