In the world of golf there are three major course types available for play . . .
It is important to understand not only the demographics of who will eventually play these courses, but also the business model of how those operations will need to perform. The proper design of these three course types can quite honestly be the difference between success and failure of the operation. This is not a one size fits all type of project. Careful planning to enhance the experience of each course must be considered. The Bates Golf Group is vastly experienced and have won national awards for all three types of courses. Experience you can trust makes the difference.
There actually is a fourth type of course project . . . the Renovation.
Renovations are needed for two basic reasons; 1) Course age and breakdown of infrastructure. 2) Upgrading an old design into a more receptive modern and contemporary course. Typically, renovations will make the course more playable, easier to maintain and visually stunning.
All three course types eventually need renovations of infrastructure but a great renovation can also enhance the purpose, profitability and playability of the course serving a specific demographic.
