The Architect Robert Muir Graves

Robert Muir GravesInspired By The Classics

Distinguished Golf Course Architect Robert Muir Graves designed the picturesque Cherry Island Golf Course in 1990, to challenge golfers of every ability level.
 
Born in Michigan in 1930, Mr. Graves graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in Landscape Architecture.
 
During his fifty-year career in golf architecture, Mr. Graves designed, remodeled, and consulted on over 800 golf course projects throughout the United States and abroad. He earned international recognition for his ability to use and enhance existing landscapes in his golf course designs.
 
A long-standing member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, Mr. Graves was a past president of this organization and was named a Fellow of the Society in 2003.
 
In addition to his course design work, for several years Mr. Graves and his colleague, Geoffrey Cornish, conducted many two-day golf course design seminars at Golf Course Superintendents Association of America Conferences, PGA Schools, and also at Harvard University. Mr. Graves is also the author of two books on golf course architecture, Golf Course Design , and Classic Golf Hole Design: Using the Greatest Holes as Inspiration for Modern Courses.
 
Mr. Graves passed away in June of 2003. Golfers, however, will appreciate his accomplishments in course design for generations to come.
