Richard Chamberlain entered the golf course design arena in 1988 as a draftsman for Marsh-Watson Pty Ltd.
This “apprenticeship” under Graham Marsh and Ross Watson installed all the technical design skills required to produce a golf course. Primarily specialised in drafting and Cad duties he also honed the skills of earthworks, drainage and all the other important roles in the production office.
Of course, we all know the creation of golf holes falls far beyond a few contour lines drawn in a design office and this is where his passion for golf and understanding of classical golf course architecture puts him at the top of his field.
Even when the golf holes have been visualised and documented, the real key to success is producing a product that the end user will enjoy, and the client’s budget has been identified and honoured.
One of Richard primary strengths is the careful use of bunkering on his golf courses, to be used only as a strategic tool and not simply added for decoration. We all know bunkers are an enormous drain on maintenance resources and we need to be mindful of this in our designs.
Since 2008 we have focused mainly on the Master Planning of Australian golf courses and remodelling works.
Our clients list around Australia is constantly growing and we will have a solution for your golf course, no matter where it sits in the golfing landscape.
