Design & Construction

I am the project manager on all Rathert International Golf Design projects. It is through this direct personal attention where I have created successful designs by personally being on-site during all phases of the course construction. I have spent three decades studying the influence that different construction techniques have on playability, construction costs and on-going sustainable maintenance practices.

On select projects, I offer "Personal Daily Project Management" where I relocate to the project location and coordinate the design and construction activities from start to finish. I act as a liaison between the owner and the contractor to coordinate the design implementation and construction work in the most efficient manner. This approach has proven advantageous for clients where tight budgets are in place and time is of the essence. I am one of only a few architects to offer such personal on site design and management services.
