The July 2021 issue of Golf Course Architecture magazine is out now.
The cover of our July 2021 issue features the South course at Oakland Hills, where Gil Hanse and Jim Wagner have completed restoration work. Brad Klein reports on how the project has breathed new life into the championship venue.
Our main feature article for this issue asks, does the pandemic-fuelled golf revival have legs? Adam Lawrence reports on how the golf design industry may emerge post-Covid; and architects from around the world explain how the pandemic has changed the way they work.
We profile Kedleston Park in England, which has upgraded its irrigation to bring uniformity to its playing surfaces, and the Belmont Golf Course in Virginia, where Scot Sherman of Love Golf Design has led a reinvention of the layout originally designed by AW Tillinghast.
Our Tee Box section includes news of Binh Tien Golf Club, Golfplan’s new course in Vietnam; the recent restoration of Hollywood Golf Club in New Jersey by Brian Schneider of Renaissance Golf Design; a forward tees project at Woking Golf Club in England; and an interview with Pierfrancesco De Simone, who has designed a new golf course for Poiano Resort, overlooking Lake Garda in northern Italy.
There’s plenty more too – enjoy the issue!
