This week Tiger Woods and the PGA Tour are at Aronomink for the AT&T National. Aronomink was designed by perhaps the most famous golf course designer of all time, Donald Ross. Donald Ross’ most famous course is Pinehurst #2. What a lot of people don’t know, is that Aronomink was Ross’ pride and joy or his “masterpiece” as he called it. In fact, there’s a plaque with a bust of Ross by the 1st hole which says “This is my masterpiece.” ”
Back in 1997 I played The Mink and I enjoyed it very much. I really like tree lined “traditional” style courses. The greens were quite undulating and challenging as well.
Digital photography was pretty bad as was my swing and my body shape back then. I have a gallery of Aronomink pictures, but they’re from the first digital still camera I owned. That camera was a whopping 1-megapixel and shot pretty bad shots.
