The Architect – Brad Booth

Designed by Maine’s renowned architect, William Bradley “Brad” Booth of Ogunquit

When designing a course, Brad says there are many challenges that he takes into account. First and foremost he starts with the premise that the design of a course is primarily “an art form, unique in that it is performed on a huge canvas of land, shaped to accommodate a game played by people with varying degrees of skill, aptitude and fortitude.”

In all his designs, he seeks to route the golf course with minimal intrusion to the lay of the land, a goal that he certainly met at The Ledges. Brad lovingly placed our course on a unique and beautiful site. He designs golf holes that are aesthetic yet meet the unique demands of golf.

He also seeks to achieve a balance of continuity, playability and emotional satisfaction while attempting to create novel and original holes that are interesting to all levels of golfers. Many of the courses that Booth Golf Course Design has designed are in Maine and New Hampshire. Besides The Ledges, they include The Meadows Golf Club in Litchfield, Maine; Spring Meadows Golf Club in Gray, Maine; Lily Pond Golf Course in Somersworth, New Hampshire, and The Oaks Golf Links in Somersworth, New Hampshire.
