Is Michael Jordan's new course the future of course design?
Forgot I read this in last month's Golf Digest, but it reminded me of an idea I had about the future of golf course design.
One of the criticisms of growing the game is that "it takes too long to play." Personally, I love that golf allows you to get away for 1/2 day, but the design of Jordan's course is unique. Courses could get a lot more casual play if they were designed in 3 or 6 hole loops so you could just get in a few holes if you wanted.
Jordan can obviously do with his land what he wants, but I think there is real opportunity to give people the chance to play real golf in 3/6/9/18 hole increments.
