Happy holidays from us all at Golf Course Architecture!

The team at Golf Course Architecture would like to wish all of our readers a happy and peaceful holiday period, and all the best for 2020.


Over the past 12 months we’ve brought you a wide range of news and insight on golf course design and development, and we hope you’ve enjoyed reading it as much as we have compiling it.


If you have a bit of free time over the festive period, why not take a look at some of our highlights from 2019?


Our cover stars over the past year were: the now-lost Stone Forest in China; Todd Eckenrode’s new layout at Twin Dolphin in Mexico; the 2019 Open championship venue Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland; and new RTJ II layout Hoiana Shores in Vietnam. We’ve gone to Continental Europe for our first cover of 2020; we’ll look forward to revealing all in mid-January!


Our feature stories in 2019 focused on: design for players of all levels; the future of municipal golf; renovation on a shoestring; and the lost courses of China. And site visits over the year included Dubai Hills in the United Arab Emirates, Ålands Golfklubb in Finland, The Breakers in Florida and Österåker Golfklubb in Sweden.


Our January 2020 issue will include GCA Green Pages, our annual directory of businesses working in golf design. Subscribe to receive your copy.


Thank you for reading and supporting Golf Course Architecture in 2019. Here’s to a great 2020!
