Since 1991, I have designed over 45 new
courses and renovated over 60. I am widely recognized
for my ability to design an upscale golf course for an affordable
this is a slight hindrance in fame and fortune, it is very satisfying
to help others.
My designs reflect a lifetime in golf. I
have experienced and know all facets of the golf course business. I
have been a superintendent for public and high end private clubs
and I have operated a public course for profit. These experiences
influence how I design a course. Challenging and beautiful
golf courses can still be efficient to build and operate.
I utilize careful stewardship of resources to further the game of
golf in challenging times.
Please feel free to read more about my design
philosophy, as well as my family's history in
the golf business. You can also get a look into the design
process, as well as browse
my portfolio and photo gallery of
original courses and renovation projects.
