Issue 63 - January 2021

The cover of our January 2021 issue features the par-four tenth hole on Gil Hanse’s new East course at PGA Frisco in Texas, photographed by Matt Hahn. We report on the progress of both the East and Beau Welling’s West course, which are growing-in ahead of a 2022 opening.

Our main feature article for this issue asks why there are so few women in golf course architecture. That small group includes Jan Bel Jan, Kari Haug, Kristine Kerr, Giulia Ferroni, Angela Moser and Christine Fraser, all of whom we speak with about their insights and experiences in golf course design.

Bradley Klein visits Congressional CC in Maryland, where Andrew Green has completed a transformation of the Blue course. And Adam Lawrence reports from Chart Hills in England, where a much-needed renovation is nearing completion.

Also: Vaughn Halyard writes about the new King-Collins layout that is taking shape in Nebraska;Adare Manor’s Alan MacDonnell discusses the role that the River Maigue plays in the layout; and Kevin Holinaty explains how innovative synthetic tee line solutions can add value to golf courses.

Our Tee Box section includes news of the changes taking place at Kyle Phillips’ Dundonald Links layout in Scotland; Blake Stirling and Marco Martin discuss their 27-hole project at Altaona Golf in the southeast of Spain; Rees Jones travels down memory lane to Coral Ridge in Florida; and we take a look at Whitman, Axland & Cutten’s routing for the 18-hole course at the Canadian ski resort of Revelstoke.

The January 2021 issue of Golf Course Architecture also comes with our GCA Green Pages 2021 supplier directory, which includes company profiles of potential partners for your next golf design project. Also, there are overviews of projects completed by AquaFuse by CMF Global, George Golf Design, Golf Optimum, GolfLink Evolve, InfraCore Golf Bridges, MJ Abbott, Paul McGinley Golf Course Design, ProGolf and Rain Bird.

There’s plenty more too – enjoy the issue!
