Life on the Links
Raised on the fairways of North Berwick West Links classic golf architecture is in Benjamin’s blood. The new courses he experienced as a youth were disheartening but fortunately inspiration came to Scotland in the form of Tom Doak and his talented crew. Benjamin helped with finish work at The Renaissance Club at Archerfield. The seeds of his future career were sown.
In 2012 Benjamin’s first major assignment came with Tom’s design / build team in St. Emilion, France. From there he went on to work with Gil Hanse and his team painstakingly crafting the Rio 2016 Olympic Golf Course in Brazil.
In a five-year Director role with the Golf Environment Organization Benjamin advised prestigious golf clubs, national federations and professional golf tours worldwide. He was introduced to the inner workings of the game and became convinced that the multi-disciplinary role of the architect is critical to building a sustainable golf industry.
