Up-and-coming golf course designer Brett Hochstein (@hochsteindesign) joins host Kyle Surlow to discuss his background as a golf course designer, how he learned how to operate a bulldozer and excavator, being named one of Matt Ginella's best young architects, and the challenges of breaking through in the golf design industry.
