02 Nov Front Office Sports – Golf Course Architects Think Small With Sport’s Big Costs
Instead of building new golf courses, architects have turned to renovations to be more economically and environmentally friendly. Front Office Sports, a respected outlet covering the $614 billion business of sports, spoke with Bobby Weed to learn how golf course architects are strategically renovating courses across the United States.
“Time constraints seem to be a big issue with golf,” Weed said. “If we can get them around a little bit quicker, we can design for speed a little bit more efficiently. I think that kind of flexibility resonates with the new generation, and for the most part anyone today simply because we just don’t have as much disposable time as we might have once had — unless you’re retired.”
