Kidd is ‘the best’

7.57am 22nd December 2008 - People

GOLF Magazine has named David McLay Kidd as the Architect of the Year for 2008.

Kidd, who opened an office in Bend, Oregon, earlier this year, was the designer behind the renowned Bandon Dunes on the Oregon coast some ten years ago.

Recently, he has had two high-profile course openings: the Castle Course in St. Andrews and Tetherow in Bend, Oregon. Tetherow was also recognized by the magazine as one of the top courses of 2008.

The GOLF Magazine article states that Kidd’s “designs often provoke polar reactions, his spirit of adventure and willingness to break with convention – both evident in spades at the Castle Course and Tetherow – are to be saluted.”
