The father of golf course architecture in the USA, C.B Macdonald was responsible for both the first full 18-hole golf course in America as well as the first great one. His National Golf Links on Long Island, New York, remains a cherished icon and one of the most spiritual experiences in golf.

As great as some of Macdonald's design work was, perhaps his greatest legacy was training non-golf surveyor Seth Raynor to carry out works on his behalf. Raynor had an extraordinarily prolific career, and designed or built a number of World Top 100 golf courses.
