Making golf courses more user friendly - a golf course architect's perspective

Making golf courses more user friendly - a golf course architect's perspective

International Turfgrass Bulletin (228): 10-11

This paper argues that differences in abilities should be taken into consideration in the design of golf courses. Two main strands to this discussion are addressed: (1) the layout of the golf course and associated golf elements; and (2) agronomic issues and course conditions. It is argued that a tough golf course is not necessarily a good golf course. An element of fear is not a bad thing but the challenge must be commensurate with levels of skill.
