ASGCA Brochure Explains Role of Golf Course Architect

The American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA) has revised and released a brochure titled, “Selecting Your Golf Course Architect: Questions & Answers.” This four-page piece provides owners, developers and managers with details on the complex role a golf course architect plays in the planning, designing and building of a course.

Tom Marzolf, ASGCA president, describes the importance of choosing a qualified, experienced golf course architect. “Only through a thorough knowledge of the game can the architect develop a true understanding of strategy, shot value, limitations of players and equipment and realistic design possibilities,” he notes. “An experienced golf course architect has a unique skill set that will smooth the process of both new golf course development and remodeling.”

To obtain a free copy of “Selecting Your Golf Course Architect: Questions & Answers,” contact the ASGCA by mail at 125 N. Executive Drive, Suite 106, Brookfield, WI 53005, by e-mail at or by phone at (262) 786-5960. For more information on ASGCA, visit their Web site at
