Thad began his design career at Arnold Palmer Design Company upon earning his degree in Landscape Architecture from Mississippi State University. He has gained a wealth of design experience and insight from his direct involvement in over 60 projects domestically and abroad. Layton is a student of golf course architecture and passionate about the game. In 2003, he was awarded the Lido Prize for Golf Course Architecture for his design submission to the Alister Mackenzie Society.

As an architect, Thad's overriding goal is to create fun and strategic golf courses that blend seamlessly into the native landscape. He believes the best courses are built in the field and is more likely to be found in the field vs. the office. Layton is convinced great golf courses can elevate the mind and spirit of the golfer, and it is courses such as these that he sets out to create.

Layton is a Registered Landscape Architect (CLARB/ASLA), and has served on the Urban Land Institute's (ULI) Recreation Development Council.
