Joining us this week is Keith Rhebb, the designer and builder behind Winter Park 9, the new short course at Forest Dunes, Cabot Cliffs, and Streamsong red course. Keith was kind enough to show a few NewClub members his 10-hole short course at Forest Dunes right after he shaped it, just before the grass started growing. Enjoy our conversation about his projects, his life in golf, and his thoughts on keeping on the right track for the game of golf. .
Lee Stone, co-architect of Champion Hill, joins us on the Bag Drop to tell his story how he went from growing fruit and Christmas Trees to building one of the finest courses in Northern Michigan.

We caught up with Tom Coyne, best-selling author of “A Course Called Ireland” and many others, at Downer’s Grove Golf Club for our first live podcast after a fun round at the site of America’s first 18-hole golf course. Tom is in the middle of his travels playing golf in all 50 states for his next book “A Course Called America” and was gracious enough to sit down with us to chat about his adventures.
We’re proud to welcome Bruce Devlin to the Bag Drop. Mr. Devlin is one of the most decorated professional golfers ever to play, with 8 (or 10 if you’re really counting) PGA Tour wins, a Senior PGA Tour win, and 19 more wins worldwide.
Nathan Perry, PGA Head Golf Professional at Aurora Country Club, joins the Bag Drop from “Ernesto’s Cave” (the locker room manager’s office) to talk golf architecture, compelling golf courses, and what makes a great round.
