Steve MARNOCH

Steve has been associated with golf and golf course design and construction all of his life. From school he always wanted to be a golf course architect after being introduced to golf by his father who was a one handicap golfer and a Head Greenkeeper of links courses in Scotland. Now an established international golf architect with a strong company behind him and enjoying producing his own style of golf courses, he takes great delight and pride particularly in his green designs. A firm believer that golf should be fun and interesting... who said that 'golf was a good walk spoiled'?

Steve has over 20 years experience in golf course construction management and Golf Course Architecture and has worked on some hugely prestigious courses and some extremely challenging courses all of which has given him the experience to understand the needs of the course, the site and the client.

Alongside Steve the golfmarnoch team comprises of:

Dimitri VAN HAUWAERT

Ex Belgium International Golfer and Consultant Golf Course Architect, Dimitri has worked with Steve for 6 years as a consultant and co-designer on specific European projects. Steve met Dimitri on a trip to Augusta National with the European Institute of Golf Course Architects in 2000. The return flight to the UK was marked by Dimitri taking a sleeping pill for the whole journey - so the conversation was you could say... uneventful. From that point they knew they would get on! Dimitri and Steve have since formed a very good working relationship and friendship over the years and are currently working together in Montenegro, Belgium, Holland and Romania.

With almost 10 years experience as an active Golf Course Architect, Dimitri has worked with some very well known names in the golf world, beginning his career as a turf consultant gave him a great understanding of the needs and requirements of all golf course terrains and for the last four years Dimitri has had the great honour of being the in house architect for Royal Antwerp Golf Club. Steve is delighted that Dimitri has recently been promoted to an Associate Member of the EIGCA and is now forging ahead on his own as Diamond Golf Architects based in Antwerp whilst still working alongside golfmarnoch on specific projects.

Dan ELLWOOD

Dan first met and worked with Steve in 1986 at St Andrew's where Dan was a Contract Manager and Steve the student from University. Working together on golf course construction contracts was a great learning curve and an essential part of the development of Steve's experience as a golf course architect. Since that time Dan and Steve have been great friends and Dan has recently worked alongside Steve as the Project Manager for the development of Los Barrancos La Zagaleta in Spain. Dan currently lives in Spain and is fluent in Spanish and has a vast experience on some of the best known golf course constructions in the UK and Europe.

Jenny YOUNG

Jenny has joined the company to support the business development and future growth of golfmarnoch. As well as company development Jenny's other main areas of focus will be Marketing and PR and supporting Steve on a day to day basis. Steve has known Jenny for several years and having become good friends in recent years, Steve feels Jenny's extensive business experience and tenacious character will add great strength and depth to the company making Jenny a great asset to golfmarnoch and a useful sounding board for Steve. Steve is confident with Jenny's ability to perform in the industry and expects high achievements and is delighted to have her on the team.
