Golf Course Architecture
The golf industry lives on dreamers, and few have dreamed more grandly or more often than Tasmania’s Greg Ramsay. Ramsay originally conceived the idea of Barnbougle Dunes, and, as he explains in the new issue of GCA, now has his finger in any number of golf development pies across his native Australia and further afield. The Dutch Swinkels brothers are perhaps less inclined to dream, but their good sense has seen them move successfully from farming to golf development and operations, as our profile of their course, De Swinkelsche, shows. Plus, we look at the importance of municipal golf courses, for so many years the engine of the game's growth, visit Penati in Slovakia and Tom Doak explains the genesis of the new Punchbowl putting course at Bandon Dunes.

About Golf Course Architecture
Our aim is to be the definitive source of information for the golf course development business.
In addition to this website, we publish Golf Course Architecture magazine each quarter. This printed publication explores golf design, development and renovation in depth, with feature articles that give accurate, consistent and articulate insights into the subject, and commentary from both our in-house editorial staff and the industry’s most respected and authoritative sources.
Our Editorial Advisory Board, comprised of industry experts, helps choose topics of the greatest relevance and interest to the industry. Golf Course Architecture is supported by the organisations whose logos are featured at the bottom of this page, and covers golf architecture stories from around the world.
Course development involves far more than just design, so the magazine covers subjects such as agronomy, the use of technology and hot button issues such as the environmental impact of golf courses.
If you are involved with the development or improvement of golf courses, Golf Course Architecture is essential reading.
