Of Course(s)

April 30, 2009

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.
