Golf Course Architect Services

Golf Course Renovation + Restoration

Design courses that are beautiful, exciting to play, and offer a significant challenge for the professional golfer while still being enjoyable for all amateur golfers.

At HMGCA we have a proven track record of golf course renovation that will insure the success and enjoyment of your facility.

The life expectancy of golf course features varies due to maintenance practices, but generally a green will last 15-30 years, tees 15-20 years, bunkers 10 years and irrigation systems 15-30 years.

We also specialize in restoring historic courses. The goal of restoring ‘classic golf courses’ is to preserve the historical aspects and tradition of a course and to restore the original architect’s design intent, thus increasing value.

We develop a design program to insure that all opportunities to improve the facility are explored. Goals maybe modest for an upgrade of infrastructure of greens, bunkers, tees and drainage. Although we always look at a more transformative approach to further insure economic viability by shifting holes to enlarge the clubhouse area, realize real estate parcels or find space for lakes and drainage ways to store water and enhance a the lands surrounding the golf course.

Breathe new life into a classic course.

Older golf courses that were designed by renowned architects have often been modified over the years without a true understanding of, or a disregard for, the architect’s original design intent. At HMGCA we thoroughly review the course seeking original features we can restore and update. In addition, our knowledge and understanding of renowned golf architect’s design philosophies, and thorough research of original photographs, design drawings, and interviews with golfers that have played the course before changes were made, enable us to update a classic course to its original design intent.
  • Improve value and aesthetics
  • Stay competitive
  • Add,rework golf features to original design intent
  • Correct poor turf conditions
  • Challenge players by adding or removing tees
