By Design: The Value of the Golf Course
During my year as ASGCA President I am proud to be working with our members and other partners in promoting the 'value of the golf course,' an effort to demonstrate the benefits individuals and communities provided by the course. The three pillars of this value - environmental, social and financial - cannot be emphasized enough.
My work and what I see from other architects has shown time and again the incredible value of a golf course for everything it touches: people, environment, wildlife, the community, the local economy and more. However, there remains an audience which views the design and construction of a golf course as an intrusion that takes more from the community than it gives - which is why architects need to be educators.
