Introduction

Timothy Liddy / Associates, Inc. was formed in 1993.  It is a small select firm providing quality golf course design services. In the firms brief history it has won many awards and created unique golf courses of enduring quality. Tim, an understudy of world-renowned golf course architect Pete Dye, has teamed with him on numerous golf courses as a project architect. He is a member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects.

One of the few American architects to work in Scotland, Tim has used this experience in the home of golf to refine and expand his approach to golf course design. 

Client relationships are the foundation of good design. Our number one goal is to provide the highest level of service to our clients and answer the particular needs of each project.  The projects we are asked to address (many top 100) are challenging and complex, which demands that we assure open, trusting dialogue with our clients.

Without a doubt Tim was the most pro-active and hands on architect I have ever worked with. Tim stayed on the property for several weeks at a time and always made himself available for every meeting and every approval process we needed to keep the project moving forward. Additionally, Tim kept our team very involved in the decision making at every step in the process. He wanted to make sure that he was delivering what our facility desired while suggesting and giving our team options that he felt could improve the project at values that made sense for the cost. In the end, Tim delivered a great finished project as Shepherd’s Rock opened in 2017 as one of Golf Magazines’ Best New Courses You Can Play.

Tim was retained by our club to first assist in the Master Planning process of what would become a $7.4 million renovation project. He was critical to the success of our project from start to finish. From the first town hall meeting to the first bulldozer, Tim was with us every step of the way.

Tim displayed great skill and passion for his work and his imagination and experience in knowing what features would be well received by our members was an enormous asset in drastically improving the appeal of this golf course. He spent a considerable amount of time collaborating with all involved and demonstrated great leadership through some of those difficult decisions all construction projects have. In a business that is so highly complicated and competitive, it was clear to see the benefit of Tim’s 20 years of experience in the industry. He boasts a huge professional support network with the many professional relationships he has developed over the years and The Ford Plantation Club benefited

I got to personally know Tim over the last four years, and I have dealt with many architects in my career. Tim, by far, is the best one. He combines intellect, caring, member concern, and financial accountability to a very high level. I highly recommend him for your project.

Through all four phases there were no big surprises and each phase was finished at or below our original budget. Tim was great to work with as he truly listened to the input from our Director of Grounds, Director of Golf and me as we spoke for the membership. He understands budget constrictions and worked well us to help value engineer when needed without sacrificing the end product. Most importantly the membership was extremely pleased with the results.
