elcome to this special edition of
entirely to the fourth annual American Society of Golf Course
Architects Design Excellence Recognition Program recipients.
The Program continues to grow and develop each year. And this year,
the projects highlighted show the positive impact a well-designed facility
continues to have for golfers and entire communities.
Over the following pages, you’ll be able to learn more about these projects,
and how the nine clubs worked with ASGCA members and other partners to
address their design challenges.
I offer my heartiest congratulations to these tremendous golf facilities, as
well as the golf course architects who provided their talent and expertise
along the way.
Similar challenges to those presented here are faced by clubs throughout the
United States and beyond. Perhaps the positive solutions delivered by ASGCA
members can provide inspiration for projects at your own club.
I hope you enjoy the read!
