Episode 112: Michael McCartin & East Potomac Park GC

Andy is joined by golf course architect Michael McCartin to talk about municipal golf, specifically Washington DC's East Potomac Golf Course. The conversation starts with Michael's background and how he got into golf course architecture working for Tom Doak and Renaissance Golf Design. The two then get into a discussion about Michael's graduate school thesis (read here) on Washington DC's East Potomac Park Golf Course. Upon opening, the reversible Walter Travis design became one of the nation's most popular and greatest municipal golf facilities. Today, it's a shell of its original self but has an opportunity (thanks to an upcoming change in management) that will allow for capital improvements.
