Characteristics of a Golf Architect
"A golf architect must be a student of agriculture, understand nature, have a knowledge of soils, knowledge of implements, drainage, and above all the particular character of the layout which tantalizes a lover of the game and holds him spellbound."
- C.B. Macdonald

Psychology of Design
"How deadly dull are two or three holes of the same character when they follow each other A drive and pitch followed by a drive and pitch is a good deal like serving a watery pudding after a watery soup."
- Robert Hunter

The Design Process
"The ability to create is to consider all the problems of a golf course. The architect must visualize the effect his work will produce from all angles of the game."
- George C. Thomas

Utilizing Natural Features
"Now and then one finds a hole of real distinction which nature herself has modeled, and to add anything artificial would be a crime."
- Robert Hunter
