several years in the Golf Course Design business we have found that many
of the same questions
and issues about design are often raised by Club Managers, Superintendents,
Club Committees and Developers as well as Golfers of all types, from
professionals through to social players.
have also found that in designing and building golf courses in
today’s fast moving business, construction and turf industries,
that the most important ingredient required to build a great
golf course is not just money, but rather, is a like-minded pursuit
of quality, by all stakeholders.
In response to these and
many other issues, our Managing Director and Golf Course Architect, Nigel
B Douglas has collected his thoughts and
experiences gathered over 10 years of design, and penned a book, entitled
Golf Course Design -Modern day issues and experiences.
The book dispenses with the modern day hype that often surrounds
the industry, and in an opinionated, personal and uncut manner,
provides logical and common-sense explanations and reasoning on
many design related issues affecting golf courses and golfers in
the rapidly changing modern day context.
*236 pages and 42 pictures and diagrams, GOLF COURSE DESIGN is
an enjoyable read for golfers who might have wondered how modern
day golf courses came to be. GOLF COURSE DESIGN is also a valuable
reference document for Club Managers, Superintendents, Club Committee
Members and Developers.
