"Mr. Jones once told me 'One has to cut the cloth to suit the pattern and since nature never repeats herself, let the natural lay of the land be your guide.' I think that in today's modern glut of golf courses and golf course architects, it is easy to fall prey to designing and building golf courses that are strong on photo opportunities, but weak on playability and enjoyment."

"Golf Course Design has no Boundaries"
Harry Bowers’ approach as a golf course architect is to view each project with a fresh and enthusiastic style that puts a major emphasis on individual client attention, while remaining sensitive to the characteristics of the land and mindful of the challenges of the game of golf.
Harry brings to the Design team over twenty-five years of golf course design and construction experience, as well as experience as a competing amateur player that has provided him with invaluable experience in design by having a thorough understanding of the necessary skills of shot making and playability. In addition to working with legendary architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. as a design associate, Harry has developed his own design studio and also works with a variety of PGA Tour players.
