Issue 55 - January 2019

6

The January 2019 issue of Golf Course Architecture marks the debut for a new layout, designed to present our content more clearly and improve the reading experience, regardless of whether you choose the printed or digital editions.

Our main feature article considers the lost courses of China. Brian Curley, Mark Hollinger, Tom Doak and others tell us about designs that were built but are no longer in existence – like Schmidt-Curley’s Stone Forest course in Kunming, which features on the magazine cover.

The Tee Box section opens with the news of two new courses at the Costa Navarino development in Greece, designed by José María Olazábal’s firm. We hear from Todd Eckenrode about his new Twin Dolphin course in Los Cabos, Mexico, look at the routing of the new Gil Hanse course at Les Bordes, France, and much more.

Elsewhere in the issue, Rees Jones describes his work on Taheiyo Club’s Gotemba course, Adam Lawrence asks if golf is slimming down, and Harry Cloke explains why data analytics is the future of golf course management and design.

We also have an exclusive interview with Henrik Stenson and Christian Lundin, who are collaborating at Österåkers Golfklubb in Sweden, the debut project from Stenson’s design firm.

Our team has travelled the globe again, bringing you reports on the new European Golf Design layout at Dubai Hills Golf Club in the United Arab Emirates; Ombria Resort in Portugal, designed by Jorge Santana Da Silva and built by Progolf Construction; and Craig Haltom’s work at Stevens Point in Wisconsin, USA.

We ‘hole out’ the issue by looking at how golf clubs are making their facilities work after dark.

The January 2019 issue of Golf Course Architecture also comes with our GCA Green Pages 2019 supplier directory, which includes company profiles of potential partners for your next golf design project. We also hear about projects completed by some of these firms, including Inturf, SOL Golf, Whitemoss, MJ Abbott, Atlantic Golf Construction, Rain Bird and Golf Optimum.

We hope you enjoy the read!
