DESIGN & BUILD

Creating exceptional golf experiences through hands-on design and feature construction.


Exceptional Design. Affordable Golf.

 

Affordable public golf provides the access and inspiration for golfers young and old to play the game for a lifetime. There is no more important venue to provide exceptional design and golf experiences. Dusenberry Design embraces this opportunity.

Keney Park Golf Course was built in 1927 by the City of Hartford, Connecticut and designed by renowned architect Devereux Emmet. The design concept for the renovation is inspired by the classic sensibilities of “Golden Age” architecture while delivering bold and unique design concepts by the Dusenberry Design team.

Uncommon Mountain Golf.

 

Cornerstone Club is 4,800 acres of breath taking high-altitude terrain with 360 degree views of the surrounding peaks and alps of the West Elks, Cimarrons, and San Juans. The first tee sits at over 9,200 feet above sea level and sets the pace for an uncommon mountain golf experience. The golf course is not forced into steep side slopes or extreme uphill/downhill holes that plague most mountain golf course routings. Rather, the golf course was routed effortlessly on the existing terrain with a light touch on the land. Variety is really the strength of the golf experience. Golfers play through aspen forests and ravines, sagebrush meadows, and scrub oak savannah. Cornerstone Club is mountain golf re-imagined.

Renovation complete in summer 2018. Grand re-opening summer 2019.

Private Estate Golf. No Limits.

 

A private golf course on the Ellerstina Polo estate outside of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Dusenberry Design was asked to develop a unique design concept on this 30 acre property. Our solution was to design the ultimate in private estate golf. The concept is “open format” and unstructured so as to allow limitless imagination by the client. Play from anywhere to any green or pin position.

An innovative design concept that is cost effective, environmentally friendly, and wildly imaginative. The ultimate private golf experience.

The Public’s Golf Club. Investment and Return.

 

An 18-hole municipal golf course built in the early 1990’s for the City of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The golf course had not undergone significant renovation since original construction. The course needed updates to infrastructure such as drainage and irrigation while also updating all grass species to the newest cultivars. The renovation goals and priorities were improved playing conditions, improved drainage for year-round play, and targeted improvements to strategy, playability, player enjoyment and pace of play.

Post-renovation the facility experienced record highs in rounds played and revenue. The success of the renovation led the City to construct a new $6 million clubhouse which opened in early 2018. Dusenberry Design continues to consult with the client on improvements around the clubhouse, practice area, and new entrance.

Donald Ross Re-Discovered.

 

Dusenberry Design is working with classic architecture expert, historian, and author; Dr. Bradley Klein on the restoration of this 1928 Donald Ross designed private golf course. The intent is to embrace the classic design character of one of Donald Ross’ most distinctive works. The original routing of the course remains intact and all planning protects the original design intent.

The master plan embraces the unique landforms – everything from ideal rolling terrain, exposed rock, stands of native grass, and mature hardwoods. The plan also simplifies the lines of play, with mowing patterns into greens that are more linear and more expressive of the existing landforms. The plan also creates a bunker style that is more scatter-shot in its placement a la Ross, while providing risk/reward options for those who challenge these bunkers. At the same time, these bunkers are pulled closer into the intended line of play so that their strategic purpose is more evident and appealing. The master plan is being executed in phases to limit disruption to members and spread out capital costs.
