GARY PLAYER DESIGN RECEIVES 2017 DESIGN EXCELLENCE RECOGNITION

The sixth annual American Society of Golf Course Architects Design Excellence Recognition Program honorees have been named. Projects from 11 courses have been cited for their work with ASGCA members in addressing unique design challenges.

Since its creation, the Design Excellence Recognition Program has highlighted the innovation and problem-solving skills required of today’s golf course designs, from new 18-hole layouts to practice facilities and renovations of various sizes.Hole #13 (2)

The 2017 nominations were reviewed by a panel of golf industry leaders, including representatives of the Club Managers Association of America, Golf Course Builders Association of America and Golf Course Superintendents Association of America.

Gary Player Design’s Mountain Top Course in Hollister, Missouri at Big Cedar Lodge was one of just 11 recipients of the prestigious award. Along with Gary Player, Senior Designer and ASGCA member, Jeff Lawrence, led the project from start to finish.

“These wonderful golf facilities, and the architects who worked so closely with them, have my congratulations and great respect,” ASGCA President John Sanford, ASGCA, said. “The projects recognized here continue the tradition of the Design Excellence Recognition Program; well-designed facilities that make a positive impact on the game to benefit golfers and their communities.”
