“The game of golf is an experience like no other. I believe that it is our mission, as Golf Course Architects, to provide thoughtful, challenging, and memorable settings for that experience.”
Bob Moore will be forever grateful to his father and grandfather for introducing him to the game of golf at an early age. He began caddying at eight, and was playing within the year. Bob became enamored with the challenges of the game and with the settings in which the game is played. As a young man, his love for the game led to employment in both the maintenance and construction of golf courses.
Upon graduating from Wake Forest University in 1979, Bob made the decision to pursue golf course design as a career. He returned to school and tailored his curriculum with a focus on golf course architecture, receiving a Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture from North Carolina State University in 1983. His professional career began with the firm of Jerry Turner & Associates, where Bob developed his skills as a landscape architect and land planner. His early golf course designs include Nags Head Golf Links, North Shore Country Club and Wildwood Green Golf Club, all in the State of North Carolina.
Bob joined JMP in 1990 and became a Principal in 1994. Leading JMP into the Southeast Asia market, he has continued to produce some of the region’s best courses, including Mount Malarayat Golf Club & the renovation of Manila Golf Club (Philippines), Rajpruek Club (Thailand), Bukit Pelangi Country Club, Royale Jakarta Golf Club and the renovation of Senayan National Golf Club . He has also designed award-winning projects in the US that include The Golf Club at Roddy Ranch in Antioch, California; Heritage Golf Club, Chapel Ridge Golf Club and the renovation of Masonboro Country Club in North Carolina. Bob is a regular Member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects. In 1999 he relocated to North Carolina to open JMP’s East Coast Office. Living in Chapel Hill, he is married and the father of two children.
