The January 2022 issue of Golf Course Architecture magazine is out now in both printed and digital formats.
The cover of this new issue features the sixth hole at Woking Golf Club in England. We report on its heathland transformation, which is being overseen by golf course superintendent Andy Ewence alongside architect Tim Lobb.
Our main feature article for this issue considers the perspectives of six young golf course architects on the development of their golf design careers. Reda Channane, Jeff Danner, Alex Hay, Riley Johns, Tom Kelly and Angela Moser provide insights about how they got their break in the industry and what they feel are the most important attributes for success as a golf course architect.
Adam Lawrence visits Les Bordes in France, which has recently opened its Gil Hanse-designed New course. We also profile Verdura Resort in Sicily, which has worked with Kyle Phillips to reimagine its two courses after extensive flood damage.
Elsewhere, Ryan Book asks whether fescue grasses are the ideal choice for areas between holes, and considers the example of Laurel Links, where they have taken an alternative approach.
Our Tee Box section includes news of Andrew Green’s renovation work at Scioto Country Club in Ohio; the Brett Thomson and Phil Tataurangi-designed Tīeke Golf Estate course in New Zealand; an interview with Lassi Pekka Tilander about his new par-three course for Rae Golf in Estonia; and we hear from Tripp Davis about how he is transforming the Riverside course at Atlanta Athletic Club in Georgia.
The January 2022 issue of Golf Course Architecture also comes with our GCA Green Pages 2022 supplier directory, which includes profiles of potential partners for your next golf design project. Also, there are insights and project overviews by Agrostis, Art Schaupeter, MJ Abbott, Pure Seed, Rain Bird, Raymond Hearn and Semillas Fito.
