The NEXT membership event is the 25th annual meeting in Pinehurst from Friday evening October 31st to Tuesday November 4, 2014.   As event draws near,  we must close entries to complete final arrangements.

Entries must be received by Wednesday October 22.  Please click on  Pinehurst event 2014  for the entry form and more details about the annual meeting.  Contact Society Board member Steve MacQuarrie at  if you have questions about the Annual meeting.

The Pinehurst event will include a dinner at the Mid Pines Hotel on Saturday and one speaker will be Society member Bill Case. He will discuss his interesting new book, ‘Golf in Columbus at Wyandot Country Club’ soon to be published by The History Press of Charleston South Carolina. Bill had a keen curiosity about this Ross course that no longer exists and ultimately authored a fine history. You can read Chapter 3 via this link.   Congratulations to Bill Case.

Society members did have a memorable event in Philadelphia back in April.  A summary can be read in this lu lu of a report.

Founded in 1989 to recognize and safeguard the integrity of courses from the "Golden Era" of Golf Course Architecture, the Society's particular focus is the work by Donald J. Ross & Associates of Pinehurst, North Carolina before 1948. We believe that the golf courses designed by Ross are works-of-art that merit close care and meticulous preservation. When renovation work is needed, we believe that - wherever possible - the course should maintain its original look, shape, and playing character; and when accommodations are needed for the modern game, they should be consistent with the original design intent.

We, therefore urge clubs to seek out those architects, shapers, consultants and superintendents in the industry who endeavor to preserve these traditions, and that are comfortable with the basic strategies outlined in our Restoration Guidelines, wherein we distill the wisdom of countless restoration successes and provide a blueprint for clubs interested in recapturing their Donald Ross design integrity.
