“Rarely has the introduction of a new classification, like our MacKenzie Collection of lightweight cotton outerwear, received such an immediate response. Little details, like the flat knit tipping along the zipper really sets this style apart. Versatile, affordable, appropriate for varied conditions and available in wonderful mélange colors like our cotton suedes, it is no wonder the MacKenzie Collection of outerwear has been such a hit,” says Marshall Mancillas, President and CEO of Carnoustie.

Carnoustie has gained the reputation of fleece garments of top quality particularly their “Cotton Suede” which has become an industry standard and now in the MacKenzie line they use a lighter, unbrushed cotton. Available in a quarter zip vest, quarter zip long sleeve pullover and new for Spring 2016, a full zip vest. The MacKenzie Collection of outerwear offers affordable and versatile piece featuring flat knit detailing at the collar and zipper placket and all mix or match with other items in the Carnoustie Collection.

Golf Books #219 (The Australian Golfer)

Jan 26th
2016

41EZc-dakzL‘Easy fluency, conciseness, excellent arrangement of material, a gift of expression that puts even the complexities of a golf stroke into a form that looks almost simple – all of these are found in Mr Soutar’s book. It was only to be expected that Mr Soutar would have a great deal of valuable information at his finger’s ends on the subject of golf in Australia …

This is a book which golf players of every degree of profiency or ineptitude may study with advantage, and the explanations are so simple that the veriest duffer, after reading them, will be utterly unable to account for the regularity with which he either misss the ball altogether or misplaces the turf and the secretary’s temper simultaneously.’ – Sydney Daily Telegraph This book has been reproduced by the Golf Society as it is considered the most important book published on the history of golf in Australia.

The Golf Society of Australia was established in 1982 and one of its objectives is to research and preserve the history of golf in Australia. The author, D.G. (Dan) Soutar was one of the first professional golfers in Sydney. He arrived from Scotland in 1903 and most of the information contained in this book was related to him by other golfers.

He admits that his knowledge of early Australian golf was limited, and some of the chapters are written by other people such as the information on Victoria’s golf that was written by R.A.A. Balfour-Melville, the first Secretary of Royal Melbourne Golf Club. Special thanks to Mr Ian Rennick, Past President of the Golf Society of Australia who was instrumental in making this book possible. Ian has advised that later research has discovered some errors in dates and locations. Please enjoy the read. G A Vincent A.M., President, Golf Society of Australia.

Blue Canyon Country Club (Canyon Course), Thailand

Jan 25th
2016

The Canyon Course at Blue Canyon Country Club in Phuket, Thailand has undulating fairways, deadly roughs, lengthy carries and narrow landings. Surrounded by freshwater lakes and in harmony with the earth, the Canyon Course brilliantly features natural hazards, towering trees, multiple tees, rolling fairways, long carries, narrow landing areas and well-guarded slick Bermuda Tiffdwarf greens. As its name “Canyon” suggests the holes are built along canyon edges with undulating fairways and greens.

Blue Canyon Country Club (Canyon Course)

Designed by Yoshikazu Kato the course is set in an abandoned tin mine and may of the old strip mines characteristics are evident throughout the course. Streams filled with rust-colored water, canyons with sheer cliffs exposing red and white tin ore laden rock, and tailings from old mining operations are a few of the many throw backs to days of time gone by.  But wait, there’s more…
