Welcome to my web site; I have been designing golf courses in the Midwest (and some far-flung areas) since 1969, and this site is about these courses, my background and design philosophy. There's also a listing of courses I have designed or remodeled, don't think I missed any..

With my age and the no-fun aspect of air travel these days, I am restricting my work to consulting on existing courses and new projects.

Ron Kern, my son, is a Golf Course Architect working out of his home town of Carmel, Indiana. Learn about Ron and check out the courses he's designed such as Purgatory Golf Club (which has been rated in the top 100 public access courses in the United States by Golf Digest Magazine) at his web site.

In retirement mode, I am spending my time noodling around on the clarinet, which I started playing again in 2009 (see www.clarinut.net), and keep busy playing in two community bands. I also rediscovered what Jesus did for me on the cross, and spend time worshipping and studying in Bible classes. I talk a little about this on the clarinut site.
