Golf Course Architecture

Golf Course Architecture

With the vast majority of golfers performing at a skill level that means hitting any part of a fairway is a rare success, is strategic design irrelevant? For the main feature article in our October 2015 edition, we canvas the opinion of a range of golf architects and ask whether a new philosophy of golf design is needed.

Also in this issue, our cover features the new Al Zorah course in the United Arab Emirates, and we report on visits to Old Elm in Chicago, Royal County Down in Northern Ireland, Le Touquet in France and two new courses on King Island in Australia. We hear from golf architects Rees Jones, Richard Mandell, David Williams and Ken Moodie, and bring you all the biggest news from the golf design industry.

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.
