For almost 25 years, Jeff Bradley has been known as the preeminent builder of golf course bunkers in the U.S. Working primarily for Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, his artistic bunkering has helped define the strategies and style of places like Cuscowilla, Bandon Trails and Friars Head. In doing so, Bradley has influenced a generation of young shapers. And while he’s consulted and worked shaping projects for a number of other architects and design firms, including Michael Hurdzan, his priority and allegiance continues to lie with Coore and Crenshaw.
Jeff joins the podcast to discuss recent bunker restoration projects like Talking Stick and Seminole, the story behind the bunkers at Sand Hills, the challenge of playing most minimalist courses and what would be his favorite set of bunkers.
Listen to Derek discuss the legendary book, “The World Atlas of Golf” on the Good-Good Golf Podcast.
