Unknown unknowns and the golfing road less travelled

Episode 8: Jasper Miners from

Jasper Miners from joins us on this episode to conduct a whistle stop tour through the first golden age of golf course architecture – how this period and its' protagonists transformed the penal Victorian school of architecture that characterised the first inland courses. How this movement was catapulted towards something much more strategic though the intercession of John Low and Stuart Patton in their course revisions at Woking GC.

We look at a few of Jasper's favourite golden age architects before casting our eyes over more contemporary characters in the design world and how Pete and Alice Dye spawned a second golden age of course design.

Jasper then shares an epic 3 week golfing trip throughout France, England and Scotland and an Emerald Isle bucket list to die for.

We hope you enjoy listening to the episode in equal measure to the enjoment we had in recording it!
