I played Parkland course Tuesday. This course at the Legends has a fascinating history. Mike Strantz has been involved in the building of this golf course. Many do not know what has been his real role. 

According to JKH75, a member on this forum, Mike was called in by Larry Young to finish Parkland course after Tom Doak and his young associate Gil Hanse bailed on project after disputes with Young's on the design. This led Mike Strantz to be involved. He left his mark with deep bunkers having a lot of character. Sadly, his work is gone now. They did a complete bunker renovation to course in 2017. This renovation was much needed to as bunkers had become difficult to maintain and play for for majority of players.

Even with Parkland's bunkers softened and some removed, it still has 
some of the Strantz style.

There will be no more Michael Strantz courses, but there will be golf holes and courses inspired by his creativity.
