Episode 2: Mike Clayton

Mike Clayton joins us on this episode to explore his early days in golf at Eastern Golf Club in Melbourne. His ascent to become an Australian Amateur Champion which led to a professional career in both Europe and Asia.

Mike then tells us about how he became a writer and his first forays into restoring some of the golden age greats of Australia, the creation of a modern masterpiece with Tom Doak at Barnbougle and perhaps a new one with Mike De Vries at 7 Mile Beach.

He also covers many of his party pieces such as rollback, scale and the importance of MacKenzie's design principles.

Have a listen, he is always great value! It's a long one, but well worth the investment.

We hope you enjoy this episode. Many thanks for tuning in.

Special Guest: Mike Clayton.
