Course Review and Comments

Palmetto is the best kept secret in America. Most of us will never get to play Augusta. I have been fortunate enough to play Augusta, and Palmetto definitely gives you a taste of playing Augusta. The same architect who did the original Augusta National did the major work on Palmetto. "Probably the highest compliment paid to Palmetto was made by Dr. Alister MacKenzie in the May 1933 edition of the American Golfer Magazine. MacKenzie said, “The alterations at Palmetto have been such a success that the Chairman of Bobby Jones’ executive committee at the Augusta National writes me saying, ‘We have only one serious complaint to make against you regarding the Augusta National. That layout you designed at Aiken is liked so well that the Aiken colony does not seem to be the least bit interested in coming over to the Augusta National’.”

If I had only one course to play, it would be Palmetto.
