“Their vision of what a golf course should be impressed us. Their objective of designing a great golf course for the average players while still providing a tough test for the better ones is what a private club should be. Ian is a great architect who we have been working with for many years. He brings a thorough understanding of golf architecture and history. Mike brings his knowledge of what a great player expects and surprised us with his knowledge of the average player needs. Mike and Ian have played most of the top golf course in the world and their architecture is based upon those experiences. They are the best firm in Canada!”

This includes Renovations



Ian Andrew Golf Design is committed to the preservation of great architecture so that future generations can enjoy and play the best examples of golf course design. I was personally responsible for completing the much heralded restorations of St. George’s Golf and Country Club and Highlands Links the only two Stanley Thompson courses in the Top 100 in the World.

But unfortunately some courses are clearly are not as well designed as others. There are instances where it makes more sense to either renovate the original architecture or completely rebuild what is there.


My approach is to combine my personal design philosophy with architectural inspirations drawn directly from the Golden Age of Golf Course Architecture. What I’m looking to develop is more interesting strategies, something more sustainable and a course that suggests it was built a long time ago despite the perfect playing conditions.

I believe my greatest asset is being able to communicate my vision clearly through 
digital imaging. I believe that my clients should be fully informed and completely understand the end results of any renovation or rebuild before a shovel hits the ground. I want my clients to be confident that any major change will “dramatically” improve their golf course and put them in a much stronger position once the work is complete.
