Golf Course Architects


Tom Kite

Tom Kite is certainly well known in the game of golf
as one of its consummate professionals with 19 PGA Tour
victories, including the 1989 PLAYERS Championship and
1992 U.S. Open. Tom also played for the U.S. in seven
Ryder Cups – four of them were victorious teams – and
he would captain another squad in 1997. In addition
to his PGA TOUR victories, Kite claimed the Vardon Trophy
(lowest scoring average) in 1981 and 1982 and is also
a two-time winner of the Arnold Palmer Award (leading
money winner). He led the TOUR in career earnings from
Oct. 29, 1989 until Aug. 27, 1995. Since joining the
Champions Tour in 2000, Kite has won seven times including
a major championship. He led the Champions Tour in greens
in regulation every year from 2000 to 2003.

Less well known, but rapidly changing,
is his work in golf course design. Tom only takes on
projects when he knows that his schedule will allow
his full participation in the project. While he is highly
involved in all phases of a project, he focuses on green
design and course strategy.

Kite, and was associated with Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish

In addition to his role in Bechtol

Planned Environments, Inc. for 30 years. Planned Environments

backgrounds of anyone in the golf industry to Bechtol

the creation of a new golf course from its inception,
financing, personally designing the course, and providing
construction management for the project. During the
time with the City of Austin , he collaborated with
