On this episode myself and Tyler Davis interviewed golf course architect, OSU Grad and Tulsa native Colton Craig. Colton tells us all about his upbringing. His love for the land, how it naturally forms a golf course and his current and future projects.

A word from Colton. "Golf course architecture has been a passion of mine my entire life. My old files are filled with golf courses I drew starting at the age of three. I read every book on the topic I can find, and study/walk golf courses religiously. In 2011, I started in the industry as an apprentice to a golf architect in my home town. After learning the basic principles of routing and how to read topography maps, I wanted to get my hands dirty. Over the next couple of years I worked on various maintenance and construction crews to learn the mechanics and operations of a golf course. Determined to continue my dream, I went to Oklahoma State University to get a degree in Landscape Architecture. From there I was able to acquire internships with golf architects around the country. During these experiences I was exposed to all facets of the design process and different project types including renovations, restorations, and new courses. In February of 2019 I started my own design firm and we are currently building our first 18-hole golf course (Park Mammoth Golf Club). I would like to take this time to thank the love of my life Annie who has supported me and my dream since the first day we met."
