Golf architect Ian Scott-Taylor provides sketches and watercolors

Welsh-born golf architect Ian Scott-Taylor brings a special dimension to his client work that only a handful of course designers have practiced since the early 1900s. Scott-Taylor provides detailed sketches and compelling watercolors of individual golf holes for his restoration and original course design projects. His exceptional artistic talent is prized by client clubs and prominently displayed. Scott-Taylor, who has been involved with some 50 golf course projects in 16 countries, is dedicated to the principles of classic strategic golf and the accurate restoration of classic courses. He is the only golf course architect to have worked on heritage and ecological issues for the British Government, while he served with the Royal Commission of Ancient and Historic Monuments.
