Two architects are better than one, especially when refurbishing the work of one legendary golf architect like Gary Player!
It’s perfectly fine that we called upon the services of two architects to rejuvinate what a legendary golf architect had originally done here at Lotus Valley Golf Resort. We’re delighted with the results from Jonathan Morrow and TurfPro Golf’s Craig Bertram.
Jon Morrow has been immersed in the game of golf since the age of 9. He played and coached the game of golf at every level and held Director of Golf level positions before embarking on a Course Design career.
Jon represented Wales and Great Britain at Junior, Youth and Senior International levels as a player by the age of 18. Following a successful 4 year Golf scholarship at Florida State University, USA, Jon returned to the UK to pursue a playing and teaching/career.
This broad exposure to the competitive and commercial sides of the game has provided a firm foundation for a career in Golf Course Design.
In addition to his fine work at Lotus Valley, Jon is also a part of the projects at Red Mountain in Phuket and Bangkok's Riverdale golf course.
