Jan Bel Jan comes from Pittsburgh, PA golf family. Her father, George Bel Jan, was a golf pro/superintendent; three of his five “in the golf business” brothers were peer-respected PGA professionals. From them, she learned the game and business of golf. Jan began her design career with Tom Fazio with whom she held a senior position in golf course design, construction and project management for more than twenty years. Her experience as a registered Landscape Architect, Certified Arborist and former assistant superintendent, provide her with a unique outlook on the playability, strategy, ecology, economics and aesthetics of golf courses.

Jan was elected into the American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA) in 1990 and is the incumbent Secretary on the ASGCA Executive Committee. She represents the ASGCA as a board member of the National Alliance for Accessible Golf.

Jan formed her golf course design firm in 2009 and is a managing partner in the National Women’s Golf Alliance. She is a long-time contributor to the multiple disciplines of golf. Jan has presented customized programs to PGA of America, CMAA and GCSAA members. Topics include “Setting Up Golf Courses for Success”, how to retain and engage more women in golf, inclusion of people with disabilities in golf and environmental sustainability. In 2013, Ms. Bel Jan was an Adjunct Professor at Hodges University, Johnson School of Business in Naples, FL.

LINKS Magazine named Jan as one of “The Top 10 Female Golf Course Architects” in March 2015. In January 2014, she was presented with the Women In the Golf Industry’s President’s Award and American Society of Golf Course Architects’“Design Excellence” Award. Sports Illustrated Plus listed Jan among the “Top Ten Most Influential Women in the Game of Golf" in December 2000 and February 2005.
