President, Bobby Weed Design
Mr. Weed is a member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, Golf Course Superintendents' Association of America, Donald Ross Society, and the Florida Turfgrass Association. Mr. Weed's professional career began with an apprenticeship under Pete Dye, an association and collaboration that has stretched for over 30 years. In 1983, Weed was hired by the PGA TOUR, where he advanced to become their in-house architect in 1987. From that post, Weed was responsible for the design of many of today's best known TPC venues, which continue as host sites for prominent TOUR events. Weed was also able to collaborate with many of the TOUR's most familiar names, including Sam Snead, Gene Sarazen, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Raymond Floyd and Chi Chi Rodriguez; a cross section of experience unavailable to most. In 1994, Weed formed his own design firm, where he continues to "hand-craft" golf courses.
