Layton shared the vision and future of APDC as well as the company’s four core pillars of design: Variety, Beauty, Strategy, and Context. Conference attendees viewed the design plans for the upcoming second course at Castle Stuart and were given a guided tour of the grounds.
Layton commented, “As an architect, it’s encouraging to see my fellow practitioners doing great work in new markets around the world. As a golfer, I can’t wait to play these new courses.”
“It’s been refreshing and enlightening to talk with not just golf architects, but also professionals in the turf grass industry and the GEO, who have gathered to discuss what we can do collectively to grow the game, make it fun, more sustainable and get the message out that golf courses can be of benefit to the environment if executed properly.”
