Scot Sherman, ASGCA, has made a name for himself working, in part, alongside Davis Love III and Mark Love. In a “Tartan Talks” podcast with Golf Course Industry, Sherman talks about some of his influences and favorite projects, including the Plantation Course at Sea Island, Georgia.

“Davis is always most concerned about folks that play the course 51 weeks a year, besides the PGA Tour week; it needs to be playable,” Sherman said. “We always think about things strategically. There needs to be a balance, and it makes the work of golf course architects interesting.”

He also noted he has learned about golf course architecture from his time with ASGCA Past Presidents Pete and Alice Dye, as well as Bobby Weed, ASGCA.
