Coore & Crenshaw Land Trinity Forest Job

Bill Nichols reports the great news that Ben and Bill will be doing the Trinity Forest course in south Dallas, which still has some hurdles but could become the host site to the Byron Nelson in a few years when AT&T takes over sponsorship.

Whether they are working for their normal fee or pro-bono, as one AT&T executive was insisting, is not know.

Looking at all of Ron Whitten's tweets, he sure seems upset that they got it, or at least that's the attitude I'm feeling. He's questioning the site, etc. and that its not something C&C would normally do.

While I love C and C's work, I would much preferred to see what a Tripp Davis or a Mike Nuzzo design would have looked like.

I believe Coore is doing or has done his charity feel good leave a legacy behind project in NC at his college alma mater course so now its Crenshaw's turn in Texas! Lotta doubters out there. One just hopes this project pans out for the young people in a great golf state such as Texas. Its working at Common Ground, East Lake, maybe also at quieter Indepependence GC in Richmond and elsewhere around the country.

Here in Philly we hope the proposed Cobbs Creek project gains more favorable standing from the Water and Park Conservancy public interest groups that are slow to adopt the supposed supporting stance of the Mayor and Fairmount Park offices!

Amen, I could be wrong, but coore's work at Old Town in NC might not be charity work, members may be taking on a hefty increase
