GOLF
RESTORATION

As golf course architect Ian Andrew states in his excellent article about the restoration era, the restoration movement was born of frustration. Organisations like The Donald Ross Society were formed in response to some of the “more egregious work” on golf courses originally designed by, in this case, Ross. Now, in the United States in particular, many of the courses designed by architects from the ‘Golden Age’ of golf course architecture from 1910 to the late 1930s, are being returned to their original form, maybe with some concessions to advances in ball and club technology, so that golfers can appreciate the designs as originally intended.
