Golf course designer Brett Hochstein on building golf courses and finding work as a young architect. Plus thoughts on the WM Open and preparing for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (Ep. 59)

Up-and-coming golf course designer Brett Hochstein (@hochsteindesign) joins host Kyle Surlow to discuss his background as a golf course designer, how he learned how to operate a bulldozer and excavator, being named one of Matt Ginella’s best young architects, and the challenges of breaking through in the golf design industry.

Before the interview with Brett Hochstein, Kyle shares some observations on the debauchery-filled Waste Management Open in Scottsdale, Arizona, and looks ahead to the upcoming AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in Monterey this weekend.
