Happy Holidays from us at Golf Course Architecture!

As we wrap up another year, the team at Golf course architecture wish all of our readers a happy and safe holiday season, and all the best for 2022.

If you’ve got some time to spare over the holiday season, why not take a look at some of our highlights for 2021?

The stars of our quarterly magazine this year were: the East Course at PGA Frisco, Texas, designed by Gil Hanse; Bill Coore’s 14-hole short course at Barnbougle Golf Links in Australia; the newly restored South Course in Oakland Hills, Michigan; and the new St Patrick’s Links course in Rosapenna, Ireland, designed by Tom Doak.

We explored some important topics in golf course design, including: the lack of women in golf course design; if a renewal of municipal golf is on the agenda; the golf boom fueled by the pandemic; and the golf industry’s response to the sand crisis.

And while we weren’t able to travel as much as usual, we were still able to bring you some fascinating reports on the site, including from Congressional CC in Maryland, Chart Hills in England, Baltusrol Golf Club in the New Jersey and Marco Simone. Golf and Country Club near Rome, Italy.

There is also a lot more to our website, including the first two episodes of our new ‘My Top Ten’ series, featuring Danish golf course architect Philip Spogárd and Jeff Mingay from Canada.

We can’t wait to start the New Year with our January 2022 issue, which will include GCA Green Pages, our annual directory of companies working in golf design. Subscribe to receive your copy.

Thanks for reading and supporting Golf course architecture in 2021. On the way to a great 2022!
