As more golf course decision makers look to make improvements and renovations to courses – projects which may have been put on hold in recent years due to the struggling economy – they can benefit from a free, easy-to-use form offered by the American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA).
“Request for Proposal for Golf Course Architectural Services” is a comprehensive document designed to help developers, owners, superintendents and managers address key elements of a project, including general notice, scope of services, owner’s responsibilities, submittal requirements and the selection process.
“Funding for projects could be more readily available in 2011 than we have seen the past few years,” says ASGCA President Erik Larsen. “At the same time, many courses are having to catch up on projects which may have been forestalled during the recession. The ‘Request for Proposal’ document serves as an important tool for those with projects big and small. It’s useful for first-timers who have never been involved in a golf venture, as well as managers and committee members who have been down this path before.”
ASGCA can also assist those preparing the Request for Proposal on creating the most comprehensive and efficient distribution list to make sure recipients are the most knowledgeable and well-prepared to bid on the proposed project.
The “Request for Proposal” is a complete document that provides a thorough list of areas to be reviewed in detail by the golf course owners/managers to help solicit competitive bids for the benefit of the project and the public. This free document is available for download here.
Founded in 1946 by 14 leading architects, the American Society of Golf Course Architects is a non-profit organization comprised of experienced golf course designers located throughout the United States and Canada. Members have completed a rigorous two-year long application process that includes the peer review of four representative golf courses. ASGCA members are experienced golf course architects, able to counsel in all aspects of golf course design and remodeling and comprise many of the great talents throughout the golf industry.
