Architect: Thomas McBroom
One of the highest regarded golf designers in the business today, Thomas McBroom’s courses can be found all over the world – from Europe to China to the Caribbean, but most prevalently in his native Canada.
McBroom’s courses are distinguished by their details, strategy, routing and outstanding beauty, and have routinely been regarded as among the best courses in Canada, of which Tobiano is his most highly ranked work. In all, McBroom has 12 courses in SCOREGolf’s Top 100 in Canada, second only to legendary designer Stanley Thompson.
McBroom knew he’d found something unique anywhere in the world when he first saw the site for Tobiano:
“My first thought was just how powerful the site is from a drama and a beauty point of view. I’ve said it many times, but Tobiano has to be the best site that I’ve ever seen in terms of that beauty and that drama.”
The cornerstone of his work is a profound understanding and fascination with the history and tradition of the game in combination with his own creative flair and vision. The hallmark of a McBroom course is one that is beautiful, dramatic, memorable and fun to play. Timeless classics just like Tobiano.
But perhaps the designer sums it up best:
“Tobiano is literally as good as it gets.”
