The golf architecture landscape has changed dramatically since I started writing for Golfweek in October 1988. Back then, the players were the stars and the venues were only beginning to emerge from the confines of a neutral background. That was the year “restoration” first became a buzzword thanks to the U.S. Golf Association bringing the U.S. Open to The Country Club in Brookline, Mass., for the first time in 25 years.
BORREGO SPRINGS, Calif. – It isn’t often that a superintendent gets to grow-in the same course twice. But that’s the résumé builder of greenkeeper Steve Gregory here in the Southern California desert, where he brought Rams Hill Golf Club to life in 2006, then nursed it back from near dead in 2014. Such is the risk of a high-end real estate development in today’s turbulent golf market. Even with a can’t-miss name such as designer Tom Fazio steering the process, there’s no guarantee.
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – The U.S. Golf Association managed to make the ritual of an annual meeting interesting. When the organization bestowed its annual Herbert Warren Wind Book Award to Dr. Kane Demas, a history professor at Central Michigan University, for his volume, “Game of Privilege: An African American History of Golf,” it was tacitly acknowledging a long-overlooked dimension of the game. More celebratory was the USGA’s embrace of veteran female golfers.
It's their golf course, and rational arguments reach a limit under such conditions. When owners embody what they take to be local or unique values, then their position prevails. That's okay. All you can do as a critic/consultant is make the best case. https://twitter.com/chasebturf/status/962717919137452032
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
