Abstract:Tom Fazio describes how three courses he designed in the late 1970s propelled his career into the 1980s: PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Wild Dunes in Charleston, South Carolina, and The Vintage Club in Palm Springs, California. Discusses how he was reluctant to take the Vintage Club job, as it would entail being away from his family. Explains that "it's another one of those lessons you tell young people...you make a sacrifice and usually those sacrifices become long term personal gains." States that "those three golf courses at the time came online in the early 80s and so that recognition and those individual golf courses just automatically had the phone ringing off the hook with new projects."
