Of Course(s)

This year’s Ivy League men’s golf title goes, for the second year straight, to Columbia University, despite the odds: the golfing Lions have no home course to practice on, making do instead with a simulator in a converted squash court. When feasible, the team rides a bus to a club outside New York City. Conversely, Ivy rival Cornell practices on a Robert Trent Jones course, while Yale’s was designed by Charles Blair Macdonald (the “father of American golf-course architecture”). Princeton practices on a private club near its campus, and Dartmouth (being Dartmouth) flat-out owns the idyllic Hanover Country Club.

    Hi Andrew,

    I like the picture, and that’s why I’d appreciate it if you’d pull it — it’s a reproduction of a snap I posted at http://www.dartmo.com/photos/hcc%20dartmouth.jpg

    Thanks,
    Scott
