Geoffrey S. Cornish – A Celebrated Craftsman of the Course
Swansea Country Club was designed by Geoffrey Cornish, a Canadian born designer who is considered one of the cornerstones of modern day golf. Cornish is a celebrated golf course architects with the design of some 250 courses credited to his Uxbridge firm.
Designing a golf course is “a fascinating profession that requires technical and scientific knowledge combined with creativity and vision,” says Cornish.
