One of my regular visits while surfing the internet is a website called Golf Club Atlas. Recently, I pulled up the home page of the website and found a great picture of the 11th hole at Claremont with a caption below containing some very favorable comments on the course. For those of you who have not seen the website, the link is below.
Golf Club Atlas is a website designed to promote frank discussion on golf and golf course architecture. Many of the worlds greatest courses, some known and others not so much are profiled under the tab Courses By Country. There is a section titled Interviews containing comments from many big time people in the world of golf and golf architecture including Tom Doak, Jim Urbina and Dave Wilber (all having ties to Claremont). The Discussion Board is the most visited feature of the website and again you will find people from all over the world discussing anything and everything to do with the sport we love. (an ongoing thread on Claremont including more pictures can be found on page 3 of the discussion board) I wanted to share this with all as I was impressed to see Claremont on the front page of a website that is admired and visited by many golf enthusiasts from all over the world. We truly have a gem of a course and I feel so fortunate to be a small part of it's rich history. Enjoy and we'll see you on the course!
