Bob Baldock was a former Class A PGA pro and irrigation specialist before turning his attention to course design. The slogan on Baldock's business letterhead read, "Sensible courses ... for a sensible cost."

Baldock designed many courses. In summaries of the courses he designed, "well known" and "prolific" are the words often used to describe him. Not derogatory, but not flattering.
