Bechtol Golf Design was founded in 1998 as an independent golf course architecture and design practice. The firm combines the complementary talents of its principal, Roy Bechtol, with a varied and experienced support staff. Unique among golf course design firms, Bechtol Golf Design has access to expertise extending across the entire land planning, environmental, landscape architecture and development process.

Our offices are deep in the heart of Austin's renowned Hill Country and share space with Planned Environments, Inc., an associated company specializing in land planning and landscape architecture.

During our first two decades, Bechtol Golf Design has designed, built or collaborated in the building of more than 20 top-ranked golf courses. And we are bucking a worldwide trend by designing golf courses when few are even being considered. Our trademark continues to be course design that rewards a broad range of play levels and integrates seamlessly into the community and the environment. As simple as it seems, Bechtol Golf Design brings to life golf courses that are beautiful and fun to play.
