Richard Mandell Golf Architecture is led by Richard Mandell of Pinehurst, North Carolina. He is assisted by Ben Hood, Qing Huang, and Robert D. Rauch. As a group, our staff includes both landscape architects and civil engineers. Richard is most likely the only golf course architect who is also a certified Arborist. The firm’s size is a deliberate strategy to provide personal service to meet our clients’ needs.
The firm’s organization ensures that all aspects of a golf course project are considered and accounted for through a variety of design disciplines but with a specific hands-on approach. These attributes transform a client’s comfort level, knowing that all solutions are being considered and accounted for through a variety of design disciplines.
