‘Q & A’ Series on Golf Development from ASGCA

8.03am 17th March 2009 - Management Topics

The American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA) has published a series of brochures that outline the golf development and renovation process. This family of publications – called the “Q & A” series – is understandable, well-researched and includes useful background for those who want to learn about the basics of golf course development and renovation.

The series consists of four brochures, all printed in full colour, which, together, describe the process of identifying a parcel of land for golf and transforming it into a well-designed and well-constructed layout. The brochures cover “The Development Process,” “Selecting a Golf Course Architect,” “Master Planning” and “The Remodeling Process.” All the brochures were written by members of ASGCA and are regularly updated to reflect current best practices and market conditions.

The brochures may be used individually to educate audiences who are interested in a specific aspect of golf course development. For example, a club that is beginning its investigation into whether a renovation is feasible may find the pieces on master planning, selecting a golf course architect and the remodelling process useful. Or, a municipality that is considering development of a parcel of land for golf and/or recreational green space may focus on the piece on the development process. For those investigating all areas of development, the series provides a good overview of the process.

The “Q & A” series is available free-of-charge from ASGCA. All four publications may be viewed and downloaded at the ASGCA website by clicking on the “Publications” tab on the home page.
