The Bag Drop

On The Right Track - Keith Rhebb, Golf Course Designer and Builder

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. .
