My new book Golf: Sustainable by design is available to purchase on Amazon:
This book serves as a guide to those in the golf community wanting to learn about (and benefit from) a more sustainable approach to golf design, construction and maintenance. It also serves to help the multitude of golf courses currently experiencing economic difficulties that are attempting to find new ways to maintain and develop operations. Using examples, including some remarkable pictures, from over 50 golf courses across the globe, the author has identified practical tools that facilities can use to improve environmentally, socially and economically and benefit in the short and long term.
An article I recently wrote about some of the unique African “bushveld” golf courses.
An article I wrote this month for Indian Golf Digest highlighting why golf clubs should focus on the small detail if the want to make the biggest impact for the least amount of money spent.

I recently spent a few days in Dubai and got to play the new Trump Dubai Golf Course alongside Kent Gray – editor of Golf Digest Middle East. I rarely get to play much golf these days (I tend to walk golf courses that I am really interested in) so it was a treat to get out and play one of the newest editions to the golf scene in Dubai.
Post the round Golf Digest ME asked me to pen some thoughts on the golf course and see these here: http://golfdigestme.com/trump-international-golf-club-dubai-year/
Singapore Golf Vacations magazine recently published an article about the way we work. See the article here: Sustainable Golf Design and Construction Article
What makes us different from our competition is the fact that we are very involved in every facet of the design and construction process. Whilst this might mean we only work on a select few projects at any one time we have come to realise that this method is instrumental in helping create high quality golf courses that are cost effective to build/restore and maintain and are environmentally friendly and sustainable in nature.
