6 courses


JMP DESIGN is lead by Brian Costello, Mark Hollinger, and Bob Moore and although they do have a portfolio of American courses they seem far more prolific outside the USA, particularly in Asia. While Black Stone Golf Club on Jeju Island, South Korea, is quite an interesting and effective layout, some of the other JMP Design work elsewhere in the region has been disappointing. An example is the Sun Valley Sanya course on China’s Hainan Island, which has had issues with maintenance and turf quality over the years but even in mint condition is underwhelming.
