About Us

Integrative Golf Design is a hands-on golf architecture firm dedicated to the creation of fun, exciting, and enjoyable golf courses worldwide.

The company was founded by Riley Johns on principles rooted in quality craftsmanship, natural artistry, and attention to detail. Our mission with each golf project we undertake is to create a meaningful golf experience; one that appeals to the mind, excites the senses, and caters to the soul.


Rising from the wake of the 2008 recession, golf design practices around the world are experiencing a quiet revival.  There is now a growing school-of-thought that believes personable, hands-on golf course architecture is the way of the future.  At Integrative Golf Design we believe this to be true.

We believe this emerging hands-on model is far more efficient for prospective clients and yet creates a much more impressive golf product.  It simply relies on a core group of professionals who are capable of personally managing and implementing the design from start to finish.   This means the designers are actually on-site more days than not -- and not just overseeing the project's progress, but personally creating and editing the golf course features day-in and day-out.

This is what Integrative Golf Design delivers.  Simply put, we integrate the design process with the construction process in one streamlined and concerted effort.

In our experience, the shaping components in golf course construction are just an extension of the design process -- and probably the most critical aspect too.  Working from a concept, rather than a rigid set of plans, we prefer having creative latitude which gives us the freedom and flexibility to make improvements to the work as we go. 

Moreover, we are passionate about personally implementing our own design ideas in the field so nothing is lost in translation from paper to dirt. This not only allows us to pivot, react, evolve, and edit our ideas in real-time, but allows us to add that extra layer of nuance and creative detail. Such artistic freedom allows us to get the absolute best out of every golf feature we create.

Whether exploring a new golf course development or improving an established golf course, please consider Integrative Golf Design and discover how we can help your project reach its full creative potential.
