At RussellGolf Design, we approach every golf course project with a series of fundamental design principles that guide our work.  Every project is site specific.  Randy believes that every project should be gently laid on the land upon which it is planned.  We listen to the site and work with its unique features to create the best possible golf design for that site.  So while there is enormous effort, planning and skill behind each of our projects, each of our projects appear effortless, as though they were shaped by the same forces that created the surrounding landforms.
Our philosophy also calls for the creation of courses that combine playability for the average golfer with sufficient difficulty from championship tees to challenge the world’s best players.  Our objective is to design each hole so that it makes it (i) easy for really good play, (ii) hard for indifferent play at the hands of good players, and (iii) comparatively easy for the duffer class.  To accomplish these goals, we aim to not only provide great diversity of play (with no two holes being alike), but  incorporate the concept of “thinking” golf into our strategies.  
Our philosophy is that the game of golf should be as much about thinking as it is about skill, and a good hole best likened to a pyramid, in that as the apex is approached, the difficulties increase and less latitude is given for error.  We believe that it is this concept of “thinking” golf increases both playability and repeat enjoyment of the golf course.  Our goal is to offer the golfer an opportunity to avoid difficulty with well-considered and executed shots and for these opportunities to be available for every skill level, including the duffer class.
