As a boy, Canadian Ian Andrew used to sketch golf holes he had just seen while watching a tournament on television. Today, Ian not only designs new holes and courses, he is passionate about preserving the classic golf architecture he probably saw on TV when he was younger. A graduate of Landscape Architecture from Guelph University, Ian worked with Doug Carrick of Toronto-based Carrick Design for 17 years. While there, he was the lead designer on new golf course projects, including Ontario's Ballantrae Golf Club in Aurora and Nobleton Lakes Golf Club in Nobleton. While working for Carrick, Ian consistently pushed the envelope by trying new styles of architecture. In 2006, Ian left Carrick Design to open his own design firm, Ian Andrew Golf Design. At his firm, golf course design takes on a new approach: Ian believes in minimalist, nature-determined methods to creating golf courses. By moving less earth and allowing nature to be the ultimate model, Ian's company strives to make golf architecture fit into its natural surroundings so well that it appears the hole was simply "found," rather than created. Ian is also a noted historian who is recognized for his research of golf architecture and his interest in the development of junior golf. He is known as a decisive leader with an intense love of details and techniques. Ian is a member of the Western Ontario Golf Superintendents Association and the Travis Society.
