Creating a golf course that appears as natural as possible doesn’t always mean moving as little earth as possible. The feature article in the July 2017 issue of Golf Course Architecture sees Adam Lawrence consider the approaches that golf architects including Tom Fazio, Dana Fry and Rob Collins take when attempting to recreate nature.

Our cover features the new West Cliffs course in Portugal, designed by Cynthia Dye McGarey. We pick out some highlights of the course and get insight from Dye into the challenges of this 14-year project. Also in our Tee Box section, we report on high profile renovations at the Trump Turnberry resort in Scotland and Wentworth Club in England. Thad Layton of Arnold Palmer Design Company explains why resort courses must reinvent themselves to survive, and we visit the Olympic Club in San Francisco and Medinah Country Club in Chicago. James D’Arcy also explains how safety has been enhanced at Grange Golf Club in Dublin, while Richard Allen discusses how a new lake edging solution can ease maintenance for clubs. The issue concludes with a piece from Shannon Fisher explaining how vertical hazards can be integral to a golf hole’s strategy.
