Golf's Grand Design
By mustang6560 on 8/3/12
PBS is airing a golf documentary tonight called Golf's Grand Design and I think you should plan to watch it (or set your DVR to record it).
The program provides the history of golf course design in America over the past 130 years. It will feature some of America's best known courses including National Golf Links of America, Baltusrol, Van Cortlandt Park, Augusta National, the Dunes, Pinehurst No. 2, Crooked Stick, Sand Hills, Shadow Creek, Bandon Dunes, and Old Macdonald, and some of golf's most influential architects including Robert Trent Jones, Sr., Pete Dye, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, Tom Doak, Ben Crenshaw, and Bill Coore.
The program premeires tonight at 10p.m. ET on most PBS stations, but check your local listings just to be sure.

The Olympics will have to get shelved for at least one night; I am *definitely* watching this one. And if it's available on DVD, well, I guess I'm going to have to break out the ol' credit card...
Wow, great tip Nathan. I'm going to have to check this out. I've played Van Cortlandt several times, oldest public in the US. Here in the northeast there's a pretty deep history of golf coursin' that I have only a superficial awareness of.
Unfortunately I went to record it and my PBS is airing a god d*mn Adele concert tonight at 10pm. Apparently MOST PBS's are playing this, but NY and Philly are playing Adele. And to think, I almost was going to watch PBS for the first time ever!
Stever, I found out that WLIW channel 21 is scheduled to play the golf thing Sunday @ 9pm est. Let's hope they keep their word.
Thanks for the heads up Beef, but I don't get WLIW. I get WNET which is playing Laurence Welk at 9 on Sunday, and WHYY which is playing Julia Child Memories. I can't imagine why PBS has trouble getting viewers.
