Designing A Golf Course: The Key Elements To Consider

2 10 mins 2 yrs

I have always wanted to try my hand at golf course architecture. It is something that I will probably never get to do but my interest remains. Designing a golf course is a bucket list thing I suppose. Every time I walk down a fairway I enjoy examining the features of the hole and how the course designer presents them to the golfer. Standing on the tee and surveying the land ahead in terms of layout and penalty areas are all part of the course architect’s skill set. Optical illusions abound in golf and these tricks involving distance perception can mess with the golfer’s head. Seeding doubt in the mind of the golfer and asking questions of club choice are what a good golf hole should do, in my opinion.
