‘Golf Course Architecture‘, the new quarterly journal of golf course design and modification, has entered into a partnership with the European Institute of Golf Course Architects. The partnership will see the EIGCA providing editorial guidance for the publication, ensuring that content addresses the issues that are of most importance to the industry.
‘Golf Course Architecture‘ is Europe’s first periodical devoted entirely to golf course design and development. It will provide news, features and insights into the golf course architecture industry. The first issue will be published on 30th June 2005.
EIGCA president Mark Adam will write a special foreword for the launch edition. He says, “The EIGCA is delighted to be partnering with ‘Golf Course Architecture‘. This new publication provides the industry with an excellent opportunity to share expertise and information, and helps the Institute to meet its objective to advance the study of golf course architecture, planning and development.”
Publisher Toby Ingleton says, “The announcement of ‘Golf Course Architecture‘ has been met with great enthusiasm throughout the industry. The Institute and its members have been very supportive in the preparatory phase and this partnership will be instrumental in enabling us to deliver a publication of interest and genuine value to golf course architects, developers and managers.”
The European Institute of Golf Course Architects represents Europe’s most qualified and experienced golf course architects. Members of the Institute have shown through their skill, experience and training that they are able to design and supervise the construction of golf courses to the highest standards. The Institute aims to enhance the status of the profession, increase the opportunities for members to practice throughout the world and develop the role of education.
EIGCA members Ross McMurray and Howard Swan will sit on the magazine’s editorial advisory board and will be instrumental in defining its editorial features list. The partnership also sees ‘Golf Course Architecture‘ journalists having access to the EIGCA’s extensive library of related books and periodicals and all members of the EIGCA receiving a free subscription to the journal.
