David McLay Kidd's Gamble Sands
David McLay Kidd's latest design is Gamble Sands in Brewster, Ore. The course occupies a huge sand plateau overlooking the Columbia River and the snowcapped northern Cascades. The finished product harks back both to Kidd's Scottish roots and his breakthrough design at Bandon Dunes. It's pure golf. No homes, roads, cart paths or trees -- just acres of wide, firm fairways that lead to gigantic, equally firm greens.
