Golf in Historic Parks and Landscapes - Understanding Historic Park Designs
Understanding the historical development of a site, its features and characteristics, will help shape golf course designs or modification of existing courses. Most parks are the product of more than one historic design phase, and expert advice is generally needed to unearth the evolution of a park from its origins to the present. Historic importance can derive from a site being an early or representative example of a style of layout, type of site or the work of a designer of national importance; or from having an association with significant persons or events; or from having group value with other nearby sites.
