Formed in 1946, the ASGCA was the first professional organization
of golf course designers in America and, for over 50 years,
its members have designed some of the world's greatest courses.
Our member designers are among the best in the world and are
actively involved in the design of new courses and the renovation
of existing courses in the United States and Canada.
Talent, Vision and Experience
Members of the ASGCA are, by virtue of their knowledge of
the game, training, experience, vision and inherent ability,
able to design and prepare specifications for a course of
functional and aesthetic excellence. Qualifications for membership
in the ASGCA include experience (eight years on the job) and
accomplishment, which is defined by the responsibility for
five completed designs.
Preserving the Game & the Environment
ASGCA is actively involved in several issues related to the
game of golf, including environmentally responsible designs.
ASGCA members design courses in concert with Mother Nature. In addition, many
courses are certified by the Audubon International as wildlife sanctuaries.

our organization and how our members can transform your dreams
into lush fairways, brackish bogs into bunkers and green space
into the world's most memorable holes.
