Sculpting the Perfect Course with Scott Macpherson

Explore the world of golf course design with Scott Macpherson, a respected course architect from New Zealand.


At a free talk, Macpherson will discuss the process of designing a course and his work on updating the Old Course at Scotland's famed St Andrews, the oldest course in the world.

The Edinburgh-based designer, who penned the book St Andrews: The Evolution of the Old Course, thrives on creating engaging landscapes that not only meet business targets but also offer challenging rounds to players.

"My design ethos is simple: I aim to create attractive golf courses that provide fun for golfers of all abilities,” he says.

Macpherson’s professional journey, from learning beside Peter Thomson, a five-time Open Championship winner, to leading his own firm, Scott Macpherson Golf Design, highlights his dedication to the craft and continuous pursuit of excellence in the field.
