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.
