Thomson Perrett & Lobb, the international golf course architecture practice founded by five times Open Champion Peter Thomson with partners Ross Perrett and Tim Lobb, has launched a new website featuring exclusive video interviews and project insights.

The new site at includes a library section showing videos and interviews with the partners, plus articles and downloadable documents on a variety of golf course design related topics.

The content will benefit golf industry professionals, investors and developers, delivering high-level insight into golf course design and essential issues such as irrigation and sustainability.

Five-time Open champion Peter Thomson gives exclusive video interviews alongside partners Tim Lobb and Ross Perrett and talks about the history and origins of TPL, which dates to 1964, the year prior to his final Open Championship victory.

Tim and Ross also talk in-depth about TPL’s major project at New Giza, Egypt, where the course descends spectacularly into the bowels of a former quarry within view of the ancient Pyramids.

There are also important discussions on how TPL tackles water consumption and the techniques used to restrict water wastage during the development of courses and their maintenance once completed.

Ross Perrett said, “The new website is an important vehicle for us, keeping the industry and potential clients informed of what is going on at TPL and, beneficially, giving them insight into the way we work and think as golf course architects.”
