Golf Course Architect Introduction:

Welcome to The Bates Golf Design Group.  I am pleased to share with you our web site and company overview.  My career as a Golf Course Designer in the US and in the international golf course market over the past 29 years has produced golf course designs in every imaginable climate and type of terrain. My staff’s unique blend of golf course design and golf course construction experience has led to our distinction as a group that knows how to meet all project goals.  We are pleased to offer Fred Couples or Gene Bates Signature design and delighted to announce a new member of our design group, the world renowned Ron Kirby who will be collaborating with us on many future projects. Who incidentally is Gene’s mentor, best friend and father-in law.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to review our web site and the collection of golf course design projects in our work history.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us or call me personally should you require additional information
