Inspired by Tradition

The works of golden age designers Harry Colt, Alister MacKenzie and Geo C. Thomas remain the biggest influence in contemporary golf architecture. Today’s leading design / build crews use bulldozers, excavators, rakes and everything in-between to recreate the style and shot values pioneered by these legends.

ARTISAN GOLF DESIGN is proud to be the only design / build firm with the language proficiency necessary to operate independently in Japan. Lead Designer / Shaper Benjamin Warren was raised in Scotland, has studied classic golf courses worldwide, and was trained by premier firms from the United States.


ARTISAN GOLF DESIGN’s golden ratio. 
Golf architecture that endures is:

  • Fun for the 99%
  • Challenging for the 1%
  • Inspiring for 100%
