LA Programs Emerging as Educational Leaders in Golf Environments

Posted on Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

The BLA and MLA programs at the University of Guelph have been putting out some fairly significant golf course architects over the last 40 years, and being within the Ontario Agricultural College really helps,” said Professor Sean Kelly in the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development. “We teach, research, and publish quality golf content from our program, as we are likely emerging as leaders in a comprehensive education related to golf environments. Furthermore, our current students seem to be particularly interested in creating desirable, playable and environmentally sensitive golf courses; heritage golf course assessment; and providing on-trend golf course renovation/restoration/preservation.”
