Pete and P.B. Dye's New Course in Curacao

In the middle of September, I journeyed to Curacao for a four-day trip to the Santa Barbara Plantation and the Old Quarry Golf Course designed by the father-and-son duo of Pete and P.B. Dye.

Check out what I wrote for the website of Golf Course Architecture magazine.

Curacao is part of the Netherlands Antilles and is located about 30 miles to the east of Aruba and 30 miles north of the coast of Venezuela. It has been described as a less touristy version of Aruba, a place I've never been, but Curacao does not have the hustle and bustle of major tourist destination. The Hyatt Hotel that is the anchor of Santa Barbara, is a low-key affair with three restaurants, three pools, a wonderful little beach, snorkeling, diving, hiking and biking trails.

It's worth a visit.
