Rob Collins - Principal Designer, King-Collins Golf Design

Mid-Am Crisis: A Golf Discussion

Rob Collins fires me up. His brand of golf course architecture is a bold, thrilling, and stimulating from start to finish. I could use the same adjectives to describe my conversations with him over the years I've known him. Much like in his golf designs, Collins does not hold back. I consider myself fortunate to know him and to have listened to him talk about his passion for building golf courses on numerous occasions. I am thrilled to finally record one of those here on Mid-Am Crisis. Collins is best known for his breakout work at Sweetens Cove Golf Club and the incredible story of how that nine hole course in rural Tennessee has captivated the golfing world. However, he is much more than just a one-hit wonder. Collins and his partner Tad King have entered into what seems like a new phase of their design career - one which the phone won't stop ringing. In the last two years they've brought their talents to new course designs in New York, Memphis, West Texas, and Nebraska. Collins tells me there is much more still to come. During our discussion, Collins shares with me the details of his latest projects and why he believes their firm is among the best in the world at golf design today. His confidence in his work shines through in this conversation and it makes me want to hop in a car or on a plane and go chase down each hole of his I've yet to see. Based on early reviews from his newest courses that trip would be a worthwhile investment of my time. I'm thrilled to have Rob Collins on the show this week and am excited to share our discussion on golf design. He's one of golf's good guys and I believe that over time he will become one of the most heralded designers of this era. If you ever meet him or play his courses you'll certainly see why. You can follow Rob's work on Twitter and Instagram at @kingcollinsgolfThanks as always for listening to Mid-Am Crisis.
