From Greensward to Putting Greens: Frederick Law Olmsted’s Influence on Golf Course Architecture

June 14 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux’s “Greensward Plan” for Central Park both inspired the American park movement and provided the catalyst for the establishment of landscape architecture as a profession. Golf course design, whether for public or private use, combines knowledge of landscape architecture with understanding the unique requirements of a challenging game.

In line with the 200th anniversary of Olmsted’s birth, and during US Open Week at The Country Club, of which Olmsted was a member, join National Park Service staff, Olmsted historians, and four prominent members of the American Society of Golf Course Architects for a lively discussion of how Olmsted’s principles have influenced course design and shaped the profession of golf course architecture.

Join us at the Franklin Park Clubhouse on June 14th from 1:30-3:00pm for this discussion. Register here.
