Lester George, based in Richmond Virginia, has spent the last twenty years developing a niche in designing and restoring exceptional golf courses. His new course designs and renovations have won numerous awards, including his Kinloch Golf Club being named the number one golf course in Virginia by Golf Digest. Having the opportunity to renovate many of the most historic and well-regarded golf facilities on the East Coast by the most revered golden age architects is a privilege Lester treasures.

Trendsetting architecture is a mainstay of George Golf Design. Some would consider using abandoned landfills as a canvass for a golf course a peculiar concept, but Lester has successfully transformed two brownfields into golf courses, converting overgrown hazardous areas into plush, green recreational turf.

Believing everyone should have a chance to play the game, he has donated much time and effort to the First Tee Program. Among several other First Tee courses, Lester designed The First Tee Chesterfield, the premiere 18-hole First Tee course in the United States, and The First Tee Richmond (a brownfield site).

Lester's passion shows for the game of golf and talent for creating a playing field for the game are evident in his design work.
