As a member of the ASGCA and the owner of Norby Golf Course Design, Kevin has been involved with more than 200 projects throughout the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean.  Whether designing a new course or restoring a golden-age classic, he takes pride in his ability to find creative solutions that fit the style and heritage of the course rather than leaving his own personal signature on a course.

Kevin is likely best known for his unique approach to master planning which helps owners differentiate their course in the local market in order to increase membership and improve revenue. Kevin's passion for the game of golf and his hands-on approach, combined with three decades of experience, has earned him a reputation for creating golf courses that are fun to play and financially viable.

Kevin has a particular interest in the "golden age" classics and has worked on courses originally routed by the masters such as Donald Ross, Seth Raynor, A.W. Tillinghast, Thomas Bendelow, John Foulis, Jr., Thomas Vardon, Ted Robinson and Paul Coates. 

The cornerstones of Kevin's design philosophy include strategy and shot-making, respect for the environment, enjoyment of the game and fiscal sustainability. As a result, Kevin has received numerous awards including 2017 Golf Inc. international runner-up for "Best New Golf Course Redevelopment" for Coal Creek Golf Course in Colorado and the 2009 Golf Inc. runner-up "Best New Course" and Top 10 Best New Course by Links Magazine and Golf Digest for The Preserve on Rathbun Lake in Iowa. Other recent projects include The Golden Valley Country Club in Minnesota, The Harmon Course at Floridian National in Florida, Paako Ridge Golf Club in New Mexico and Tchefuncta Country Club in New Orleans.
