Golf Course Architecture & Design


Golf Course Architecture & Design

Golf course design is arguably the purest form of landscape architecture. If designed properly it displays stewardship towards the land & complements its natural form and features. It is at the core of landscape architecture & ought to be embraced.

I just attended the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club in LAX.  What an amazing track and golf course that is! Is anyone else involved in the golf scene?

Golf course architecture is a really true test of large and small scale visionary deisgn and extremely rigorous construction and engineering techniques. ..... And, it is really fun.

Ryan, to answer your question from November, I am an avid golfer with a single digit handicap. I was drawn to golf design because I had a love for the game, then developed a love for the golf design industry and golf architecture. Something romantic about the whole industry to me.

I think you have to be a good stick in order to be respected in the golf design scene. A lot of business is done on the golf course in the golf industry and if you are a bad player, you lose respect and potentially lose business, in my opinion.

Fix, repair or replace all those hardscape areas used for erosion control such as in the photo above. Try a vegetatable solution that is a permanent repair to many erosion issues. With the value of 1sq ft of golf course being as high as it is it is shame for erosion to eat it up. Deltalok USA Ecology Units will provide a permanent vegetatable solution.
