New guide from ASGA

7.45am 27th October 2005 - Courses

The American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA) is releasing an updated version of its frequently-requested brochure, Golf Course Development Planning Guide. The renamed brochure, The Golf Course Development Process: Questions and Answers, is a helpful resource for anyone taking the first steps to develop a new golf course.
The four-page brochure covers all the key components involved in a new course project, including proper site selection, project feasibility, a guide to finding assistance and the development process steps. Municipal officials, investors, members of review boards, golf professionals, course superintendents, course owners and other interested parties will benefit from the updated brochure and its complete coverage of the beginning steps in the development process.
“This planning guide is an excellent primer for anyone seriously interested in developing a new course project,” says Tom Marzolf, ASGCA President. “It sheds much needed light on a complicated process that developers and investors too often take for granted. Proper planning can save a lot of headaches and troubles down the road.”
Founded in 1946 by 14 leading architects, including Donald Ross and Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the American Society of Golf Course Architects is a non-profit organization comprised of 171 golf course designers located throughout the United States and Canada. Members are actively involved in the design of new courses, the renovation of existing layouts, and issues affecting the future of the game.
