ASGCA provides information for golf course project needs
When planning a new golf course, or when contemplating a small or large-scale renovation project, contact the American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA) for a wide selection of publications to assist in the process. An architect’s advice on site selection, environmental matters, cost estimates and other factors can greatly affect the short and long-term success of a golf course, says Damian Pascuzzo, president of the ASGCA. The following publications provide background that can help projects run smoothly.
The Golf Course Development Planning Guide is a 16-page brochure, complete with color illustrations, and covers all of the key components involved in planning a new course project. All parties involved in the planning, financing and construction process will benefit from the brochure’s in-depth coverage, including construction and maintenance cost projections.
Selecting Your Golf Course Architect is available exclusively from the ASGCA. The comprehensive brochure provides step-by-step information on ways an architect can save money in the initial stages of a golf course project, as well as long term.

Information covered in the 12-page brochure includes the rationale and benefits of remodeling, advice on drafting and implementing a remodeling master plan, as well as costs and other factors related to the remodeling process.
