“Architect on Staff”
Trusted, Accountable, Creative
Golf Course Design Services

Since our inception, The Northeast Golf Company has been dedicated to the growth of the game through quality, long term relationships with clubs throughout the region. Led by Principal, Robert McNeil, ASGCA, we are offering our services as your “Architect on Staff” to further this commitment structured within a special design package. Our goal is to provide piece of mind to your staff and management officials, a trusted and accountable go-to design resource… and ultimately a valuable extension of your golf course management team.

We are keenly aware of the financial challenges in today’s golf market including club operating budgets and membership and rounds decline. We also strongly believe in the value that well thought out improvements and planning support can bring to a Club to combat these challenges. Our “Architect on Staff” package is offered to support this commitment to trusted, accountable and creative golf course design consultation.

Through the establishment of an annual design agreement, The Northeast Golf Company will become your dedicated Golf Course Architect. Your course will receive the following services:

  1. As needed visits to your course (over the course of the year) to address design issues or provide improvement directives.
    This may include the development of a design solution for an ongoing problem, consultation relative to long and short term planning, meeting with Club Officials to discuss design inquiries, or assistance with historical data collection/interpretation.
  2. On-Call Design Inquiry Services to answer questions related to technical construction specifications and construction materials or any other golf related issues at your facility.
  3. Review of existing facility conditions to establish baseline data for future decision making, annual capital improvement planning or address problematic areas on your course.

Our “Architect on Staff” relationship begins very simply with a modest retainer which will apply to time and travel associated with the above services. Once the retainer has been invested in design services, the Club will be billed on an hourly basis plus expenses for ongoing consultation services over the remainder of the annual term. All services, time, travel and related expenses are monitored and reported with each invoice.

The services of The Northeast Golf Company can be expanded at any time to include design development, construction/bid documentation development, bid administration, construction review or construction management through separate service agreements.

I take a personal stake in all of our projects and am dedicated to the highest level of service, offering creative, proven solutions, and most of all adding value to your operating team. Our team is on call 24-7, ready to help you succeed. Our mission is making good golf courses great and great courses better.
