Golfing World course report: Saint Emilion
Golfing World visits Saint Emilion, where the Mourgue D'algue family along with Tom Doak are set to build a stunning new course.D'algue are building a new course with the help of world renowned golf course designer John Doake. Just around six months away from completion we went to take a look at why the course will be so special. Well I think it's going to be a special golf course because it's a family project. We found this specific plan about ten years ago. And we just fell in love with it, and we got the to to work with Tom Doak, which is always a wonderful architect, and that's why we're going to do our best to really, make this this piece of land a, a very good golf course . Why we sort of had to choose, was the philosophy on the course. You know that, it takes for private when weand, and, but we're really trying to make a, a really good golf course here. The old farmhouses and the surrounding land will be transformed into a clubhouse with a brand new restaurant and houses for the lucky few able to live at theAnd in fact, if you take away the, the flags and the tee boxes , you already see that it's a golf course . And that's what is so wonderful about his architecture. We've moved very little dirt to build the golf course . My style of architecture really focuses on the sculptural things, the greens and bunkers. You know, and, and tries to leave the contours of the, the, the larger piece of land alone. I mean, that's a way mo, more efficient way of building a golf course . You, you know, a two foot change and what, what's happening on a green. Is a a dramatic thing. That's something that can impact whether you wanna play to the left side of the fairway or the right. And if you can do that, then you don't have to move dirt from the fairway so much to make the golf course interesting. I think think it would be pure golf where you can play fast where you have white fairways, where you can

Golfing World: Course designer Tom Doak
We sit down with one of the world’s finest course designers, Tom Doak, as he embarks on his latest exciting project.Doak is one of the most successful in a new generation of golf course designers, boasting four courses in the top 100 in the world. He learned a lot about his craft under the tutelage of the late, legendary Pete Dye . But has also been heavily influenced by Alister MacKenzie, who designed Royal Melbourne among other famous courses. His own philosophy is described as minimalist. And when we caught up with him on a project in France, he told us what he learned about design from spending time studying the great Scottish links. I had a scholarship right after I got out of college at Cornell to spend a year in the UK and Ireland, traveling around and. Learning about golf course architecture. Our department had a scholarship specially for someone who couldn't really study exactly what they wanted to study in college, cuz they pride themselves on being able to study anything you want. And I made the case that every, you know, most of the famous golf course architects have either been born and raised in Scotland or England or had spent considerable time there. And I had some great letters of recommendation, basically I had letters of recommendation from Pete Dye , and Ben Crenshaw , and Dean Beanmen and just everybody in golf. I was still surprised that they gave me the award. So when I got over, I caddied in St. Andrews for a couple of months. I was actually supposed to work on the grounds crew at St. Andrews, it was a recession and they couldn't, you know, it's a town golf course . They couldn't not hire somebody from town, but I spent a lot of time with Walter Woods who was the green keeper there for 20 years. And he taught me a ton about what you would call sustainability now. They didn't really have a name for it then but. You know, Walter was pulling kelp off the beach in, off the harbor in Saint Andrews . Putting it out by his sheds to dry, mixing it with sand, and making his own fertilizer. You know, he did that
