Inspired by Tradition

Around 100 years ago golf course architects Harry Colt, Alister MacKenzie, A.W. Tillinghast and Geo C. Thomas built golf courses that are still recognized as gold standards of the art form. The best architects of the modern era have all embraced a hands-on design & build working style that allows their golf courses to be compared favourably with the classics from the golden age.

ARTISAN GOLF DESIGN is proud to be the only design & build firm with the language proficiency to work in Japan without translators and middlemen. Lead designer and shaper Benjamin Warren was raised in Scotland, has studied classic golf courses worldwide, and learned the art working for 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%
