Golf Courses as Designed Landscapes of Historic Interest

Author(s): European Institute of Golf Course Architects (EIGCA)

The European Institute of Golf Course Architects (EIGCA), as the professional body representing Europe’s most qualified and experienced golf course architects, was commissioned to advise on the historic interest of golf course designs as part of a broader project looking at golf course development in historic parks and gardens (see the Preface). The EIGCA report explored the history of golf course development and how the historic significance might be assessed based on the criteria used for the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England. The report considered styles of course layout, individual designers and architects, and courses associated with significant people or historic events. The EIGCA provided examples and three case studies.
