On golf in St. Petersburg, Florida, Element 21's Scandium shaft, author Joel Zuckerman on his new Pete Dye book
“St. Pete’s on the coast, so you get some good golf on the water,” he says. “I’ve played several courses with great views.”
TravelGolf.com’s Kiel Christianson praises Element 21’s Scandium shaft.
“The shaft’s claim to fame is that it incorporates the element scandium into the composite, which makes it the strongest and lightest shaft in the solar system, they say,” Christianson says.
Plus, author (and WorldGolf.com blogger) Joel Zuckerman talks about his new book, “Pete Dye: Golf Courses Fifty Years of Visionary Design.”
“It’s a 50 year celebration of the pre-eminent American golf course architect,” Zuckerman says.

San Antonio, TX is soon to be a major golf destination. The Valero Texas open will be in the spring beginning in 2009 and will take place at the new AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio in 2010. With these news… more people are sure to take notice of the great venues available in the area. The AT&T Oaks Course designed by Greg Norman, as well as the AT&T Canyons Course designed by Pete Dye, are two brand new additions to San Antonio, specifically the Hill Country. Surrounded by rolling hills, the courses are part of the new JW Marriott Hill Country Resort & Spa opening in March of 2010. The new resort will be the largest of the JW Marriotts with 1002 rooms and 140,000 square feet of exhibit space. I’m looking forward to the New Year and having a new excuse to drive to the Hill country. The area is full of historic sites, vineyards, music legends and diverse culture. With 300 plus days of sunshine a year my first thought was that it was the perfect choice for these courses and this tournament!
