The team at Golf Course Architecture would like to wish all our readers a happy and peaceful holiday period, and a prosperous 2018.
The past 12 months has seen us bring you a wide range of project news, design insight and project news from the golf industry, and hope you’ve had as much fun reading our magazine and online content as we have had putting it together.
If you have a bit of free time over the festive period, why not take a look at some of our highlights from 2017. For example, our cover stories this year featured the restoration of Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida, from our January issue, the opening of the new Black course> at Streamsong Resort in Florida, designed by Gil Hanse, Cynthia Dye McGarey’s dramatic new West Cliffs course in Portugal, and a report from the picturesque Lofoten Links in northern Norway.
You could also look back at our feature articles from 2017, which covered the topics of difficulty, rough grass, natural golf and width. Or have a recap of some of our fascinating site visits over the year, including Herzogswalde in Germany, Qatar International, Maridoe in Dallas and the South course at Bayou Oaks in New Orleans.
Over the past few months we’ve been working hard on our January 2018 issue, which will be our biggest and best for a long time, with reports from four recent projects and an investigation into the future of golf design. It will also come with GCA Green Pages 2018, a comprehensive directory of the companies working across the industry and featuring thought leadership from a number of key figures and organisations.

Many thanks to all our readers and the organisations that have supported us in 2017. Here’s to a great 2018!
