Forrest Richardson studied golf architecture across the Fife Region of Scotland. Like most golf course architects, he learned under the direction of an established golf architect. Forrest's mentor was the late Arthur Jack Snyder, a past-president of ASGCA. Forrest established his firm in 1988, today known as Forrest Richardson Golf Course Architects. Their work spans the U.S. from Hawaii and Alaska to the Southwest and East Coast. Internationally they have served clients in Mexico, Central America, Canada, India, Asiatic Russia and throughout Europe. The firm's work includes golf course planning, new course design and renovations with clients ranging from private clubs and resort owners to publicly owned golf facilities. Reconfiguration and transformation of existing courses has become a specialty of the firm, with the end goal to find new sources of revenue while significantly lowering cost. Forrest has authored five books on golf course architecture, including the classic title "Bunkers, Pits & Other Hazards" which documents the formation of hazards to their crucial role in making the game exciting and fun. He is a member of the USGA Museum Advisory Committee and is actively involved throughout the golf world as a speaker, contributor and evaluator for golf courses and their owners. He served as ASGCA President from 2020-2021.
