The contractor is often part of the overall design and construction team and must work well with others.
Let’s discuss two of the important aspects of golf course construction.
1. Golf course construction is part construction project and part art form. The contractor not only has to have the ability to perform the necessary construction tasks, but the vision to translate the 2D plan to 3D reality.

The construction aspect has to make all the elements work together to create a golf course that players will enjoy and want to revisit.
