Patrick Gainer, a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s Landscape Architecture program, started his career with Wadsworth Golf Construction Company. As an Assistant Superintendent for the oldest established golf course construction company in the United States, he worked on the new eighteen-hole championship course and the nine-hole par three course of Holliday Farms in Zionsville, Indiana. Patrick completed work as on-site design liaison with the golf course architect addressing daily challenges that come along with the construction of a golf course ranging from site grading to golf course feature layout.
Using his construction and educational background Patrick has made the successful transition to Design Associate with Richard Mandell Golf Architecture. Patrick leads production of construction and bid documents, GPS services, cost estimating, and is the director of social media for RMGA. His representative projects to date are Bobby Jones Golf Club for the City of Sarasota, Florida and Oconomowoc Golf Club in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, both Donald Ross originals, as well as Lake Forest Country Club in Hudson, Ohio and the Methodist University Golf Course in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
