Billy Fuller Golf Design
Billy's experience in all phases of golf course construction, design, and maintenance give him a unique perspective. His creative approach is exemplified by the innovative bunkering system he developed while at Augusta National, affectionately known as Billy Bunkers. These bunkers save thousands of dollars annually in maintenance costs and have been installed at over 500 courses around the world.
For the past twenty years Billy has been consulting agronomist for scores of courses across North America, England, and Asia. This has afforded him the opportunity to work directly with a number of modern day architects such as Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Kite, Brian Silva, and Donald Steel.
Billy is also on leading edge of the movement to move golf toward sustainability through the development of natural fertilizers that will escape the sanctions being enacted by many municipalities around the country limiting the use of nitrogen fertilizers during the summer growth month.
He understands very well that beauty goes hand-in-hand with the golf experience and knows that a critical aspect of a golf course’s visual appeal is the surrounding vegetation and landscaping. He has studied agronomy and horticulture extensively, applying his knowledge to many acclaimed projects, some of which are listed below.
