BILLY FULLER GOLF DESIGN OPENS FOR BUSINESS

 February 12, 2007 – Atlanta, GA - Billy Fuller Golf Design officially announces the opening of its new design firm in Atlanta, Georgia.  The company is headed by Billy Fuller, a former Augusta National golf course superintendent and design associate with Bob Cupp and is the culmination of a shift in focus for Mr. Fuller capping a two year period in which he completed major renovations  at Hinsdale Golf Club in the western suburbs of Chicago, and at Wynlakes Golf & Country Club in Montgomery, Alabama.  Wynlakes was just named one of the Top  Five Renovations in 2006 by Golf, Inc. 

 For the past twenty years, Fuller has been one of the country’s leading agronomists.  In conjunction with an extensive consulting business, Fuller was a design associate with Cupp Design where he worked on the creation or re-design of nearly 100 golf courses  including several Top 100 courses in America, and more than 40 venues that have hosted USGA and/or PGA events.   

 Fuller is also well-known as the golf course superintendent at August National from 1981 through the 1986 Masters.  During Fuller’s tenure at Augusta National he developed a new and innovative approach to bunker design that reduced maintenance cost after rainstorm events by more than 80% by controlling erosion and reducing sand contamination.  His new bunker specifications have been installed in over 500 courses in North America, and are known as Billy Bunkers in the industry. 

 Combining his array of expertise in golf course operations with his design knowledge from his years with Bob Cupp enables Fuller to design strategically sound and economically affordable golf under his own banner, Billy Fuller Golf Design.  This new design firm offers design for new construction and every scale of renovation in varied environments throughout North America.   

When asked to state his design philosophy, Fuller says, “Great golf design creates an enjoyable golf experience for all levels of players.  When they walk off the eighteenth green they can’t wait to return for the next round.  Strategically it offers ample risk reward opportunities from each tee.  Aesthetically the composition is excellent.  The turf conditions from tee to green are outstanding.  The course must fit harmoniously with the native environment.  And finally, the golf course is an economic success for the owner.”
