Episode Info: Paul Cowley has worn many hats in his golf career: land and landscape planner, structural architect, superintendent and construction engineer. The majority of his golf architecture career, however, was spent running projects and designing courses for Mark and Davis Love III. Known inside the industry as one of the most creative and original thinkers, Cowley helped the Loves build some of the most interesting and inventive courses in the Southeast, as well as Diamante Dunes in Cabo, where he now lives and works. Cowley managed the construction of Tiger Woods‘ and Beau Welling’s El Cardonal course at Diamante, and he currently runs all aspects of design, planning and construction for the resort.
