"Our project was completed on schedule and budget. It makes it very easy to recommend Richard Mandell to anyone seeking the services of a golf architect."

"Since I was fifteen years old, I have been captivated by the playing fields of golf.  Those golf courses of my earliest memories have two concepts in common: Simplicity in design and inspiration of the land. These are the cornerstones of my thought process when I put pencil to paper or develop solutions in the field."

The business of golf course architecture is much more than just creating great golf holes. Creativity and inspired design must be tempered with the practicalities of an operation, whether it is a private country club, resort or public golf course, or practice facility. Without proper evaluation of  the site as well as the client's needs, even the best design ideas will be considered failures.   Richard Mandell Golf Architecture delivers world-class design methodology with a professional approach that is goal-oriented and efficient.
