Paul Chojnacky, Golf Course Superintendent at Pasatiempo Golf Club talks with Seth Jones of Golfdom about the use of goats to restore difficult areas of the golf course to it’s original design. Pasatiempo Golf Club was designed by famed golf course architect Alister MacKenzie, who’s works also include Cypress Point, Augusta National, The Meadow Club and another Bay Area course that’s been in the spotlight lately, Sharp Park GC in Pacifica. Pasatiempo opened in September of 1929 and still consistently ranks in the top golf courses in the world.
