Budget Friendly? 


This one always makes me laugh.  We will not skimp on grass quality.  Great grass promotes great golf shots.  If we take advantage of the natural features already here and create features such as Mounds, Tees, and Greens from soil dug to create ponds, we can build a great Family Friendly, Championship Caliber Golf Course, on this large flat piece of farm land, on a limited budget.  That was easy!

You want me to design what? 500 acres of farmland leaves a blank slate to say the least.  The very few natural features need to be utilized as much as possible.  I have a small woods area, a small stream, some random stands of trees and very flat terrain to work with.  We need soil to create some features like mounds and gently sloping fairways.  Ponds will need to be dug as my source for soil and to help define some holes.  The more dirt we move, the higher the cost, so a balance between creativity and cost will have to be met.  How will I create visually pleasing holes with a lack of natural features?  Smooth curves and texture are going to get the best bang for the buck.  Elevated tees, gently rolling mounds, fairways with plenty of curves and twists, and greens guarded with bunkers and mounds will appeal to any golfer’s eye.  Now let’s add some texture.  With large areas between holes, native grasses like fescue will add needed texture and interest.  Roughs will be thick, dark green bluegrass; and greens, tees, and fairways will need a fine textured tight growing bent grass. Well placed bunkers that appear to spill out of the mounds, will complete the canvas.

Family Friendly?


You just asked for a Championship level golf course!  We need 5 sets of tees for all skill levels.  Golfers will need huge, forgiving landing areas, to keep them out of trouble.  Let’s make sure the transitions from approaches to greens are flat and smooth, to allow balls to run onto the greens.  All features of the hole should be visible from the tee, so there are no hidden surprises. Water features and bunkers will all be visible from the tee and landing areas.

Championship Caliber?  


What does that mean?  I suppose a long, challenging lay out, with hazards that gobble up errant shots will do. Well with 500 acres I can certainly make this golf course long.  We will push it over 7,000 yards to accommodate this new group of big hitters.  Length alone will make it challenging, but with all these ponds, bunkers, and punishing native areas, challenging is not a concern. Tightly mowed tees and fairways, and fast firm greens will provide a very good test.
