Baylands Golf Links Nears Completion (Oct. 19, 2017)

Anchored in the heart of California's Silicon Valley, the long awaited remake of the old Palo Alto Municipal Golf Course, now called Baylands Golf Links, is finally nearing completion. Golf Course Architect Forrest Richardson, ASGCA began the project nearly six years ago after being awarded the assignment among a field of golf course architects shortlisted by the City of Palo Alto. “It began as work to make way for flood control,” notes Richardson. “We quickly focused on how the community could benefit in many more ways, such as returning the environment to natural habitat and opening the golf course to more diverse use.”
