GOLF COURSE ARCHITECTURE
MAGAZINE

Issue 47 - January 2017

Any superintendent will be quick to emphasise the importance of water when it comes to ensuring a golf course is in the best condition for play. Without the correct use of water, a golf course can quickly become a shell of its former self – something which can have major ramifications for play, and the club as a whole. In the lead feature of our October 2016 edition, Adam Lawrence takes a look at how better management of irrigation systems can help save such a precious entity.

Also in this issue, our cover features the second course at Sand Valley, which has been designed by David McLay Kidd and is currently taking shape. We also visit the renovated course at Golf de Vidauban, described as ‘the most exclusive golf club in Europe’, and hear from leading industry figures, including Keith Cutten, Alejandro Nagy and Rees Jones.
