Jeff Walser, Landmarks Director of Golf/General Manager, says its just that the ability to recall, that separates his club from the rest of the offerings in Californias low desert: When our players leave here, of course I want them to remember receiving a great experience for the price, and want to come back again.
I think the thing that helps us the most in that regard is, their ability to do mental recall remembering the holes and being able to tell their friends, Hey, I hit a seven iron on fifteen to reach the island green.
Weve all played many golf courses where you cant really remember or separate one thing from the next.
Then someone asks you how you played a certain hole, and youre struggling to remember if it was a par four, three, etc, and how you approached it.
I think were unique because every holes different at Landmark Golf Club
, and pretty memorable in its own way, Walser
said The Skins Game gave Landmark excellent exposure, though the club wasnt specifically designed to host it: We landed The Skins Game before our golf courses were even opened yet.
It gave us some incredible exposure, which really helped in our first few years.
Wed originally intended to have a hotel come in with the building of the facility, but that didnt work out.
So, we werent connected to any types of accommodations but with the Skins Game, people still found out about us.
continues, We didnt know when we were designing the courses (Ed note: they found out during the early construction phases, and some accommodations were made for it.) that the Skins would be played there, but we always hope professional tournaments will come to our facilities.
