Since he was eight years old, Robert McNeil has committed his life to the game of golf. As he learned the fundamentals at a local club growing up, Robert developed a vision of making golf course architecture a lifelong profession. He went on to follow this dream at Bryant University and The Ohio State University, earning a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and a Master's Degree in Landscape Architecture, respectively. Following this schooling, Robert spent three years under the direction of Mr. Tony Mancuso at New Albany Country Club, a Jack Nicklaus signature course. Robert assisted in executing construction and maintenance projects from the course's inception through grand opening. Robert then joined the firm of Bird/Houk Land Planners and Architects as a land planning associate, gaining experience in the creative interfacing of residential development and golf. Next, Robert joined Keith Foster Golf Course Design, where he developed and prepared design documentation, construction specifications, and client communications on projects throughout the U.S. In 1996, Robert established The Northeast Golf Company. Focused on embracing each client's unique vision, the firm integrates environmentally–sound stewardship of land with quality service to create exceptional products. Robert and his team have served public, resort, and municipal clients with their comprehensive design services.
