To whom it may concern:
One of the criteria we have for golf course design is to work passionately and with great enthusiasm. We truly love what we do and consider every project an opportunity to showcase our love for golf and for all it has to give. We also appreciate those who work with us who feel the same way.
Darryl Bartlett gave us all of that and something that might be of even more importance. He gave us his willingness to try and build Edina Country Club with an old fashioned look and feel. He took this challenge on and excelled at it.
Today’s modern courses tend to have similar characteristics, partially brought on by the tools used to construct them and partially by the skill sets that have been developed by shapers using these tools. Darryl quickly bought into the look we were trying to achieve and worked tirelessly to achieve this old fashioned horse and plow feel. Darryl’s appreciation for this type of course and the skills he showed to help us achieve it was vital in helping to restore Edina Country Club into the classic course it once was.
In addition, Darryl was a pleasure to work with. We enjoyed our time spent with him whether it was the hours we had discussing the vision or in just getting to know him. We think highly of Darryl as a person and it is with great pleasure that we recommend him for any sort of future work.

Mark Mungeam: Architect of Mungeam & Cornish Golf Design, Uxbridge, Ma.
"Darryl Bartlett did the shaping and construction of features on several projects I designed. He was always attentive to detail and happy to refine the design if requested, unlike many shapers who get cranky when asked to change something. Darryl’s dad was superintendent of construction on many of my early projects and taught me a great deal about course construction and project management. Together, Darryl and his dad were major contributors to courses such as Cyprian Keyes and Shaker Hills in Massachusetts."

Bob Frem: Owner Cyprian Keyes GC
Back in late Spring 1996 my golf course construction project was in utter chaos with a completely dysfunctional team in place
After a discussion with the architect--Mark Mungeam--I decided to fire the team in place and hire the Bartletts (Fallbrook).
My only regret is that I didn't start the project with Vinny, Darryl et al. I would have saved both a lot of aggravation and money.
My course was not only saved but was finished on time and on budget--whew!
If you want to build a new course or fix up an existing one, go no further and enlist the services of Fallbrook Golf. I know,without question, that you will be glad that you did.

Mark Blanchette Owner: Wentworth Hills C.C. "Fall Brook Golf was the contractor of choice when we built our golf course. While this was are first golf course but not our first endeavor in investing, Fall Brook certainly helped us fill the void between the two.They made our multi million dollar investment run all that much smoother and all the while looking out for our best interests. Even when things got tough they stayed with us to the end as they said they would. If I ever felt the need to build another golf course or construction project I wouldn't hesitate to call them".
