Quirky

 

What is quirky? Is quirky bad? Is it good? 

I see quirky as unique and interesting. A tool used to enhance an experience in order to deviate from the repetitive and the mundane.  In reference to golf course design, quirky is often considered to be an evil that in some way disrespects the heritage of the game and the designers of the past.  

Without quirky and without oddity, there can be no uniqueness and variety.  Therefore, without quirky, the golf experience would become similar to the skillful, yet uninspiring sport of bowling. 

I choose to embrace the uniqueness of nature, as well as my passion to create a unique and interesting golfing experience.

Through quirky... the ultimate goal is fun.
