Mike featured on Feed the Ball podcast!

DeVries sits down with Feed the Ball to discuss the wonderful provocations of Pete Dye, the devastating effect of higher green speeds, working long summer days at Crystal Downs, the “billion” holes that existed on the Cape Wickham property, which hole at Wickham he thinks is one of the coolest in the world, working with a young Tom Doak, the skills of Tom Fazio, not being a member of the ASGCA, owning one of the rare original Sand Hills t-shirts, and the person to whom he’s passing the crown of “most underrated architect.”

Kingsley Club featured in The Fried Egg's Newsletter

Kingsley Club in Northern Michigan is a modern marvel of minimalist architecture. Architect Mike DeVries moved only 30,000 yards of cubic dirt to construct the course. That's a fraction of a normal course. The minuscule amount is jawdropping when compared to Whistling Straits which moved over 1 million tons of earth! Kingsley's sandy soil and fescue fairways promote firm and fast conditions and highlight the natural land.

Brad Becken mentions Siwanoy on 'Morning Drive'

Siwanoy’s 6th hole is noted as a typical short par 3 Ross hole on the Golf Channel by Brad Becken, board member of the Donald Ross Society, during 2017’s Design Week on the Morning Drive show.  This is a high honor, since the greensite was actually moved and rebuilt in 2014 during the latter phases of the course’s restoration by Mike DeVries, one of only four greens on the course that are not original Ross greens.
