Having previously tiptoed into design with Bob Harrison as a consultant on the Townsville Golf Club redevelopment, LPGA legend Karrie Webb has jumped head-first into the business by announcing a new partnership with veteran architect Ross Perrett. To be known as Perrett Webb Golf Architects, the new company already has its first client – the Indooroopilly Golf Club in Brisbane, which appointed the team as its consulting designers back in February.
Though Webb is from Queensland, Webb Perrett will be based in Melbourne and retain staff members previously part of the Thomson Perrett company.
Said Karrie Webb on social media yesterday, “I would like to announce my partnership with Ross Perrett in forming Perrett Webb Golf Architects. It’s an exciting time for Ross and myself! We look forward to getting started on our newest major job in rejuvenating Indooroopilly GC in Brisbane Australia.”
“To be awarded our first project together in my home state of Queensland is really exciting and I can’t wait to get started," Webb stated earlier in the year, when awarded the Indooroopilly job.
Perrett and Webb have actually worked together in the past, with the Hall of Fame golfer part of the submission put forward by Ross Perrett and Peter Thomson for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games design project. Though Gil Hanse was ultimately awarded the Rio assignment, the Thomson, Perrett and Webb bid was regarded as strong and made the final short-list of eight.
“To partner with one of our most successful Australian male golfers in Peter Thomson was an absolute delight. And now to work with our greatest ever female player is a dream come true” said Ross Perrett. “We are thrilled to team up on our first project together and extremely excited to be appointed to redesign Indooroopilly Golf Club”.
