Tim Liddy has been involved in the golf world his entire life, starting with childhood short game practice in his backyard. In high school, Tim worked at a golf course, doing everything from mowing greens to working in the pro shop. Tim went on to Ball State University for college, obtaining a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design. While at Ball State, Tim attended numerous guest lectures, where he heard great architects and landscape architects such as Buckminster Fuller and David Lewis share their excitement and visions for their work. These sessions significantly influenced Tim, providing him with a great understanding of the architects' art and passion. Following college, Tim worked with Pete Dye on a large–scale project. Tim credits this experience as one that changed his career path, and he has continued to work with Dye on select projects since then. In 1993, Tim formed his own business, Tim Liddy / Associates, Inc. The small firm provides quality golf course design services with a focus on establishing and maintaining excellent, personal client relationships. Tim conducts business with the belief that the architect for a project must be on site religiously throughout the construction process to have a successful project. Influenced by Pete Dye, Tim aims for a correct horizontal layout of the golf hole every time. Additionally, his affordable designs reward players that are able to expertly maneuver the golf ball. To gain inspiration for his designs, Tim visits old, classic golf courses. He finds these visits to be some of the greatest joys in life, providing him with motivation and feeding his spirit.
