Don Knott and Gary Linn possess one of the most proven track records in the industry. Their golf course portfolio includes championship golf courses throughout the world. They have over 75 years of collective experience working together while designing more than 100 new golf courses. These experiences have included course designs in virtually every type of climate and terrain imaginable from dessert to tropics, mountains to marshes and everything in-between. Both designers are long standing members of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, with Don having served as president of the Society.

Their pedigree as world class designers evolved from more than two decades of service each as lead project architects for the Robert Trent Jones II Group. Several of their designs have been honored for their quality and creativity, including five of their course designs that are ranked number one in their respective countries by Golf Digest.

Golf design services include initial site feasibility studies, master planning, full service golf course design and site construction review as well as design consultation in the renovation of existing golf courses.

Each course is unique with its own character and personality derived from the sites natural features. Where natural features do not exist, Knott & Linn have shown an unparalleled ability to create natural appearing landforms for traditional world class golfing experiences.
