By Design - Fall 2019

3 FOREWORD I am looking forward to two exciting ‘firsts’ in the early part of next year. ASCGA will be hosting the first-ever ASGCA Winter Meeting at GIS in the lead up to Golf Industry Show 2020 in Orlando, Florida. We’ll be sharing information on golfing trends and data and consider examples of why, how and when it makes sense for industry members to work with one another. GIS 2020 itself will also be particularly special for the ASGCA—it will be our first as a Presenting Partner, alongside the Golf Course Builders Association working with the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America. Our increased presence is a great opportunity for members to share their expertise and learn more from others in the industry. You can read more about both these ‘firsts’ in this issue of By Design , and find out more about how ASGCA members will be collaborating with others in the golf industry. I consider a collaborative spirit to be crucial for success, and we saw plenty of evidence of this in the feature article—‘working together’—in our previous issue. For this issue’s cover story (page 12) we focus the spotlight on university golf courses. We hear from ASGCA members who have worked on college courses, and discover what they consider important about these projects. It’s a great read, and also very touching to hear the stories of members who have returned to their alma maters to complete golf design projects.
