In contrast to the dreary Friday we’re experiencing on the East Coast, I wanted to share a photo taken of work we did at Army-Navy Country Club, in Fairfax, VA, on a sunny, crisp autumn day.

Gearing up the Renovation Business Plan for Beechmont Country Club in Beachwood, Ohio. Five cross-bunkers on a 215-yard Stanley Thompson par-three in 1938. How many does one bring back to life? The intersection of great ground features and playabilty. #golf #golfarchitecture

As Pinehurst Resort converts its central courses to mimic the restoration work on No. 2, it's a risk of monotonous design that won't fare well with resort golfers. The idea of stumbling from No. 4 to No. 2 and not noticing runs the risk of losing the identity the courses have. I like converting No. 3 and No. 4 along those lines. But to go further is a mistake.

I suggest restoring No. 1 to Ross circa 1910 to tie in with the Ross circa 1935 look but separate itself in a more rugged, geometric look not found elsewhere.

The RMGA team of shapers and I are up for the challenge. They are as talented as anyone in the business. The first time they hired a local, Ross, it worked well!

The Country Club of Asheville is reopening after our renovation project, to restore Donald Ross’s original vision for the track while leveraging modern technology to ensure ideal course conditions.

For all of 2016, Country Club of Asheville's Donald Ross golf course was closed due to extensive resto­ration by course architect Richard Mandell. He made many great improvements, such as new 007 Bentgrass on all 18 greens, a restored creek crossing on No. 10, a new practice facility, and rerouted c...

Augusta National: More Influential Than Nature? | Richard Mandell Golf Architecture

With the Masters Tournament starting this week, my mind instantly runs to Augusta's perfect conditions and the idea that those conditions and pursuit of perfection are acceptable at this point in history. It seems that Augusta is past the point of no return and is more renowned for its current presentation than what it was when Mackenzie first designed the course or even the late seventies at this point.

With the Masters starting this week, my mind instantly runs to Augusta's perfect conditions and the idea that those conditions and pursuit of perfection are acc

Parallel par 5's just to make up a par 72 isn't as memorable as a par 4 adjacent to a par 5 yielding more varietal distinction and a par 71.

01/21/2015

Better are shorter walks between holes and the best finishing hole the routing yields, even at 323 yards. A smarter plan for fun golf also.

01/21/2015

Forcing a long walk from green to tee early in a round as a trade off for a longer finishing hole is a fool's path. Distance isn't king.

Symposium On Affordable Golf
http://www.symposiumonaffordablegolf.com/

The Symposium On Affordable Golf raises awareness and understanding of the challenges of the golf industry through open discussion, exchange of ideas and highlighting successes that promote the health and sustainability of the game of golf and the business of golf.

But nothing happens without your involvement! The more golfers (industry-connected or not) that can participate in the 4TH SYMPOSIUM ON AFFORDABLE GOLF, the more great ideas can be shared.

The Symposium is scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, October 28th and 29th at Southern Pines Golf Club in Southern Pines, North Carolina. Registration is free and the knowledge shared is priceless. If needed, continuing education is free for golf professionals and golf course superintendents.

Come be a part of the solution. Share ideas with Ron Whitten of Golf Digest and Greg Lyman, Environmental Programs Director of the GCSAA as well as Chuck Bennell, President of Tam O'Shanter Golf Course. Listen to golf architect Andy Staples and superintendent/irrigation consultant Don Mahaffey challenge the establishment on the subject of over-designing irrigation systems. Dan Costello of CaddieMaster goes toe to toe with Kris Shreiner on the oldest profession in the business, caddying.

What make the Symposium different from other industry conferences is that the golfer is an integral part of the discussion. Come be a part of this discussion. Sign up today as attendance is limited. Visit www.symposiumonaffordablegolf.com to register now. Call 910-255-3111 with any questions.
