Golf course design is a complex and interesting mix of art, science, environment and economics that requires expertise in numerous fields to plan, design and implement a successful project.
- Todd Schoeder, Principal iCon Golf Studio
Through experience, we’ve learned that a larger team provides a more comprehensive solution than any one individual can provide. However, rather than employing all professional services that may be required for a particular project, at iCon Golf Studio, we keep our core golf design team small and recruit key consultants as necessary to fulfill the unique needs of each individual project. This philosophy provides substantial savings to our clients and allows us to quickly adapt to ever-changing project demands, schedule and budget. We are fortunate to have developed key relationships with numerous industry professionals, whom are experts in their respective fields. Our team members have designed, planned and/or built over 100 golf course projects across the country and have earned a reputation for solving complex problems in a variety of challenging environments. Our goal is to exceed owner’s expectations and to create golf courses that are strategic by nature, playable by golfers, and profitable to clients.
