Renovation & Restoration
Working very closely with the leadership of the Club is key to a remodeling project. Determining the remodel plan, estimating construction costs and outlining a strategy for implementation that provides a minimum of disruption to daily activities is essential. Developing such a plan requires the many years of experience offered by the Harrison Minchew Golf Course Architecture team.
Should you request it, we are eager to help you present the remodeling plan to your membership, a service we gladly provide. We will be on site, on time and on budget throughout the remodel project.
Harrison Minchew Golf Course Architecture provides master land planning that creatively melds diverse land uses so that the proposed site is developed to its best and greatest potential. Beginning with extensive site analysis, we prepare schematic land use plans that explore varied combinations of the proposed site's topography, land use and golf course routings.
We then work with the client and their consultants to analyze and further develop all viable schemes. From these discussions a master plan will be developed that depicts the layout of residential, golf routing, clubhouse, parks, open space, commercial areas, hotel, pedestrian paths and roadways.
The master plan will have all aspects cataloged in detail. Whether we plan communities in a traditional or neo-classical style, the ambience will be understated yet elegant, and the sense of place will be exceptional.
The success of a new golf course development is not only dependent on the quality of the design, operation and maintenance but is also linked to the ability to gain positive recognition during the pre-opening marketing of the golf course. One strategy that Harrison Minchews’ group has used effectively in the past is to align the golf course design with one of the world's most famous TOUR professionals, bringing instant credibility and national media recognition to a new project.
In addition, the experience of the TOUR Pro and their perspective - gained from competing on the world's best courses - can also add value to both the developer and the golf course architect.
Harrison Minchew has worked with many of the world’s most renowned TOUR Pro’s and can offer a Developer a choice of player’s to choose from based on their popularity in the specific part of world where the project is being developed.
Golf Course Construction Management
Construction management of a successful golf course project is a discipline that not only ensures that the project is built on time and on budget but also requires creativity in implementing the Golf Course Architect's design. Harrison Minchew Golf Course Architecture's construction management team has vast experience in project oversight, tracking materials, developing efficient and realistic timelines, but most importantly being creative in naturally melding the architect's design intent into the project site (land).
When you begin charting future plans for a new golf course or improvements to your present course, environmental considerations are paramount and numerous:
How do we get started?
How do we blend nature and the course to enhance both the environment and the game?
These fundamental questions, and others like it facing you in the early stages are often challenging, and that's where our many years of experience come in to play. Our genuine respect for the beauty of your project site and respect for the game of golf, makes the difference. Environmental sensitivity today makes every Harrison Minchew Golf Course Architecture's golf course unique and able to withstand the test of time.
