Issue 56 - April 2019

6

The cover of the latest issue of GCA features the new Twin Dolphin course in Los Cabos, Mexico. Adam Lawrence reports on a recent visit to the layout, designed by Todd Eckenrode alongside pro golfer Fred Couples.

Our main feature article for this issue explores the future of municipal golf. With governments around the world under pressure to save money, Adam Lawrence considers how a strong design heritage could be key to the future of some city-owned courses.

The Tee Box section opens with news of Mackenzie & Ebert’s progress on the restoration of Hirono in Japan. We also hear from Tom Doak about his work at Memorial Park golf course in Houston, Texas, report on Andy Staples being hired to create a master plan of renovations for the South course at Olympia Fields in Illinois, and much more.

Elsewhere in the issue, we interview Kyle Phillips, finding out more about his design philosophy and approach to renovation work. And we find out about the career of Ron Prichard, the father of restoration.

There’s plenty more too – enjoy the issue!
