"Congratulations to Desert Forest on an outstanding renovation project. For many years, Desert Forest has been one of my favorite golf courses, and one I consider among the most interesting in America. As good as it was, the work that the club officials, members and Dave Zinkand have done has made that great golf course even better."
Bill Coore, in a letter to the Desert Forest Board of Directors
"Desert Forest is an American golf course design landmark. Working with the natural rolls in the desert landscape, Lawrence gracefully set out a demonically simple design, meticulously fitting holes in between the harsher elements."
