John LaFoy Golf Design 521 Blacks Drive Greenville SC 29615 USA Contact: John LaFoy, ASGCA Fellow Tel: +1 864 380 2318 John LaFoy began his golf course design career in 1973 as an apprentice to George W. Cobb, one of America’s premier golf course architects. In his early years, LaFoy was fortunate to have accompanied Cobb on design and consultation visits to Augusta National Golf Club as Cobb had been the architectural consultant ever since he designed the par-three course in 1958. From 1973 to 1978 LaFoy worked with Cobb on numerous improvements and alterations to the course, including the renovation of tees, bunkers and the rebuilding of the famous thirteenth green. It was LaFoy’s experiences working with Clifford Roberts at Augusta that sparked a fondness for renovation work, especially on many of the old classic golf courses. After Cobb retired in 1981 LaFoy started his own firm. Since his work at Augusta, LaFoy has completed renovation work on courses of many of the ‘old masters’ including AW Tillinghast, Donald Ross, Alister MacKenzie, Robert Trent Jones, Dick Wilson, Perry Maxwell, Seth Raynor, Charles Blair Macdonald, Robert Bruce Harris, and Ellis Maples. Among the courses that he has renovated, or master planned, are The Country Club of North Carolina, The Country Club of Charleston (South Carolina), The Country Club of Birmingham (Alabama), Augusta National, The Mid Ocean Club (Bermuda), The Williamsburg Club (Virginia), and James River CC (Virginia). New courses include Quarry Oaks (Nebraska), Devil’s Ridge (North Carolina), The Neuse (North Carolina), Glenmore (Virginia), Kiskiack (Virginia), and Skybrook (North Carolina).
