Boasting a resume with over 20 years of experience in the design and construction of golf courses, Rick Jacobson began his venture in the architectural world with a degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Wisconsin. After working briefly for a Chicago-based landscape firm, Rick began his golf course design career with Packard, Inc. in Chicago. He then went to work for Wadsworth Golf Construction Company, where he gained the knowledge of quality materials and techniques used to develop some of the finest courses in the world. In July of 1985, Rick accepted a position with Jack Nicklaus Golf Services as Assistant Designer. This position, which evolved from producing plan documents to being a Design Associate, exposed Rick to prominent projects in both the United States and Asia. Rick's next step was to form Jacobson Golf Course Design, Inc. in November of 1991. His firm creates classic courses that are economically sensible and result in financial success for their owners. Rick also operates under the philosophy of making the most of the relationships between the native landscape and the game of golf, making for aesthetically pleasing, playable, and challenging courses.
