Phillips, who began his design career with Robert Trent Jones, Jr., ASGCA, has designed top-ranked courses in Abu Dhabi, Scotland, Austria, Moroco, the Netherlands, Sweden and elsewhere.
Phillips, “Makes courses look like they’ve been there forever,” Vasilak writes. “This summer, he expects to break ground on Oaks Prague Country Club, in the countryside outside the Czech Republic’s capital city, and to wrap up a yet-to-be-named course on a farm in the Netherlands.
“Phillips has also inked his first contract in Southeast Asia. This fall, he expects to begin building a course for a high-end, yet-to-be-named private club outside Bangkok, Thailand.”
