We are practitioners of time-honored, classic golf architecture.

Since1989 we have produced restorations, renovations and new golf course design projects.

Our work is purpose built to deliver member, guest, and customer enjoyment.

Additionally, a number of our projects were designed to deliver championship caliber competition as evidenced by the multitude of USGA national championships hosted by courses in our client portfolio. 


We strive to craft great courses that reward smart and strategic play across a spectrum of handicaps and capabilities. We want our work to be enjoyed. Players should be inspired to  explore the art of shot-making by employing a mix of shots and approaches to different types of holes. Nobody playing a Forse Designed course should ever be “bored with the game”.


Players should find intrigue and inspiration thru experimentation. There will be some risk and reward as well as some options that are pure fun. Not unlike a great music composition, a well designed golf course incorporates elements to be unveiled, discovered, conquered and enjoyed.

We compose variations on strong themes.


A.W. Tillinghast said,

" Let every hole be worthy of a name."

We empower each course and each golf hole with a unique identity. The end of a round on a Forse Designed course should echo with sounds of  "I can't wait to do another lap!”


Here are some of our Forse Design Attributes:

  • Enduring long-term relationships with our clients
