"I have had the privilege of playing the redesigned Black Butte Glaze Meadow, by John Fought Design. They turned a below average golf course into a great one. If you haven't played it yet it is a must play for spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, a championship layout, and a course that is in great condition. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and I'm sure you will too." Sincerely Ben Crane

"We chose John because he is an avid student of Donald Ross and has played a lot of his courses, is a lover of golf and its history, and was willing to do the research necessary to accomplish our goals and consider our input. Having had time for the course to grow in and mature, I’m only more pleased with our results. The genius of Ross was in the subtleties, and John was able to capture this. Given time, John’s restoration work will become even more admired as a result of his hard work and attention to detail.

- Kelly Miller, president, Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club (Southern Pines, N.C.)

"(John) Fought has brought Pine Needles back in so many ways, while making it relevant for today's player. More to the point, he's brought it back so that men and women will play from the fairway plateaus that were so much a part of Ross's design. The ghost of Donald Ross can rest. Fought's sensitive touch at Pine Needles should bring course developers to his doorstep. They'll find a man who knows how to design new courses and to restore old ones."
