Greg Martin new president of ASGCA

Greg Martin is the new president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects. The Batavia, Illinois-based designer hasn’t announced any initiatives that he intends to pursue, but he believes golf architecture is “an opportunity to establish an exceptional interaction between man and the natural environment while solving cultural, environmental, or engineering requirements.”

 Martin’s best-known course is Rich Harvest Links, an 18-hole track in Sugar Grove, Illinois that hosted the Solheim Cup in 2009 and will host the NCAA Division I men’s and women’s championships in 2017. Martin replaces Steve Smyers, who replaced Lee Schmidt.
