Land Planning - An evaluation
of the project site, an assessment
of the geographic features, and initial
placements of development components
are integrated into a comprehensive
Golf Course Design – Golf course features are strategically designed
using a creative approach while embracing the natural environment. Quality design includes an element of flexibility that challenges skilled players, but also promotes enjoyment for those new to the sport.
Renovation – From small capitol improvement projects to full scale reconstruction of golf course features, a complete plan is developed to improve the playability, maintenance, and beauty of the course.
Preservation & Restoration
Continuing Dick Wilson & Joe Lee’s Legacy
Over the span of fifty years Dick Wilson and Joe Lee built over 225 golf courses across the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe and South America. Their trademark bunker style and classic design strategies allow for the enjoyment of not only the average player, but continue to challenge PGA Professionals.
With access to the entire Dick Wilson/Joe Lee archive, including site plans, original construction documents from Joe Lee’s designer, Betty Peter, and vintage photos(see below), it is possible to reestablish the design intent of each feature on the course, yet meet modern day standards. Access to this collection makes Jemsek Golf Design an ideal choice for a restoration project or long range master plan of any existing Dick Wilson/Joe Lee course.
Golf Course Design & Land Planning
Master Plans – Jemsek Golf Design works to develop enduring relationships with golf clubs and prioritizes planned improvements. Every course should have a master plan to maximize resources and avoid making changes that might conflict with long term goals.
Restoration – Preservation and improvement of a historic course can be accomplished with the assistance of archival plans and photographs in order to reestablish the original style and intent of the design.
Landscape Treatments – Formal, informal, and native plantings can be used to create texture and complement the aesthetic appearance of the land surrounding of the course.
“Golf course design is never finished. It’s always in state of transition." – Joe Lee
