What challenges are faced and what opportunities present themselves when an architect is hired to work on a particularly problematic piece of land? In the lead feature of issue 43 of Golf Course Architecture, Adam Lawrence investigates how golf course architects from across the world have worked with difficult sites to produce the desired end result.
Also in this issue, we speak to the team at Le Golf National in France about how the club is preparing for the 2018 Ryder Cup, and hear from a number of leading figures in the industry, including Paul McGinley, Jeff Howes, Lester George, Arthur Little and Paul Huxley.
We also report on visits to the legendary Old course at Ballybunion, Bob Harrison’s latest design in Scotland, and a new course high up in the Swiss Alps.
We also have a special report on the temporary course at Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres baseball team, and all the latest news from the golf design industry.
