New York Times Mentions

In Warren St. John's May 25, 2003 New York Times story, "Defending the right not to have a nice day," Geoff is cited as a "genuinely young American curmudgeon."

"In a letter to Roberts, according to Geoff Shackelford's Alister MacKenzie's Cypress Point Club (Sleeping Bear Press, 2000), MacKenzie wrote of Hollins: "She has been associated with me in three golf courses and not only are her own ideas valuable, but she is thoroughly conversant in regard to the character of the work I like. I want her views and also her personal impressions in regard to the way the work is being carried out.

"In a more significant sentence now than it was then, MacKenzie added, 'I do not know of any man who has sounder ideas.''
