Yolk with Doak 39: Ballyneal and Listener Questions

We’re back with another edition of the Yolk with Doak, our series with golf architect Tom Doak. Andy and Tom devote a portion of this episode to discussing Ballyneal Golf and Hunt Club, Tom’s acclaimed 2006 design in the Chop Hills of Colorado. They talk about Ballyneal’s conception, how the owners influenced the final product, comparisons to Coore & Crenshaw’s Sand Hills, and the holes that required the most earthmoving. In the second part of the episode, Tom fields listener questions about Old Macdonald at Bandon Dunes, whether par 3s can be strategic, holes with two greens, and the notion of playing a hole down another hole’s fairway.
