The Spring 2018 issue of the American Society of Golf Course Architects’ (ASGCA) By Design magazine is now available.

The lead feature of this issue focuses on how golf can be made more fun for players. Toby Ingleton speaks to ASGCA members to find out if it’s simply a case of making courses easier to play, or if the challenges are a little more complex.

In the digest news section, By Design takes a look at the relationship former US president George H.W. Bush has had with the game of golf. Bush is to receive 2018 ASGCA Donald Ross Award.

This issue also reflects on the lives and careers of ASGCA Fellows Jeff Hardin and Dick Nugent, who both passed away on 1 January 2018.

In the first of a series of articles drawing upon a recent ASGCA-commissioned research study, Jon Last of Sports & Leisure Research Group provides some insights into the factors that are driving decision making at golf facilities.

And in the five to finish interview, Art Schaupeter, ASGCA, discusses his current projects, ideal fourball and his favourite holes in golf.
