Jaeger Kovich of Proper Golf is back in the press, this time interviewed by BuffaloGolfer. Picking up from last months GolfClubAtlas Feature Interview with Ran Morrissett, this interview touches on a few other subjects ranging from my first golf memories, to one of my least favorite questions: If you could only play one course for the rest of your life, which course would you choose?
Jaeger Kovich (Proper Golf) is back in Florida working with Hanse Golf Design and The Cavemen on the 3rd course at The Streamsong Resort, in Polk County, Florida. The Black Course, will join two of the best modern courses in the world (Red and Blue). The new course is starting to look pretty cool!
Ran and Jaeger cover a variety of topics ranging from A.W. Tillinghast, to his first solo project at The Village Club of Sands Point, a comparison between architectural icons Gil Hanse and Tom Doak, going inside the mind of a shaper, the future generation of golf course architects, and more.
For those who are not familiar with www.golfclubtlas.com it is the website of golf course aficionados Ran Morrissett, Ben Cowan-Dewar, and Joe Andriole. I have been a longtime poster on the discussion board and am truly honored to have my interview listed along side names like Tom Doak, Gil Hanse, Jack Nicklaus, Mike Keiser and many more. http://golfclubatlas.com/feature-interview/
As winter has finally come to the North East, Jaeger Kovich (Proper Golf) is back working with Hanse Golf Design and The Cavemen on the 3rd course at The Streamsong Resort, in Polk County, Florida. The Black Course, which will join two of the best modern courses in world (Red and Blue), is under construction and looking good!
I just wanted to take a minute to wish all of you a Happy New Year!
The Village Club of Sands Point #13
2015 was a great step forward for Proper Golf. It was another year filled with fun and exciting projects, including my first solo project! The year started out by presenting plans to The Village Club of Sands Point, where we are now almost done rebuilding all of the bunkers! The year also included helping build a brand new golf course in The Deep South, and restoring one of the games historic courses back home in the Met Area, with Hanse Golf Design.
2016 should have some more interesting projects in store. There are some plans in the works for another potential Proper Golf renovation, fingers crossed. We also have a few more holes at The Village Club to work on where we may be making some substantial improvements. In the mean time keep an eye out for the February Feature Interview on www.golfclubatlas.com!
I have included a few of my favorite photos from projects I worked on this year as a small token of my appreciation for helping me chase the dream for another year.
Thanks again, and may everyone have a great golfing 2016!
Pictures of the restoration at Ridgewood Country Club are finally up on the website. With some amazing weather we were able to restore all 27 holes back to the way the Tillinghast course played during the 1935 Ryder Cup.
One of the best 27 hole layouts in the world, the club will be hosting a USGA event this summer, along with The Barclays again in a few years, and hopefully some more big tournaments down the road.
The reshaping at The Village Club of Sands Point is complete for 2015! What an awesome early birthday present it was to complete my first solo project as both architect and shaper, finishing the day before I turned 29! We still have to do something with holes #3, 4, and 5, but have left those for another time as we hopefully will be making some even bigger changes to these Many thanks to all those who helped!
