Golf Lawyer - Course Development

The development of a new golf course and/or club house represents a substantive and intricate commercial undertaking. The complexity and cost of such work has resulted in the emergence of a specialized construction industry focused on the unique requirements of golf course, which in turn finds itself subsumed in specific legal matters, from regulatory approvals and building permits to contractual matters.

As such, it is important to embrace this interconnection between unique area of golf course development and the law, as opposed to fighting it. For it is far more effective to make the law work for the development of a new golf course, as opposed to reacting to legal problems without appropriate legal preparation and precautions. Proactive legal work and effective legal representation is therefore essential to building your intended golf course and making the most of the project; whether it be the golf course owners or investors, architectural or engineering team, construction company or its contractors and subcontractors.

At the same time, it is important to mitigate the potential for adverse construction disputes and litigation, whether over design defects, construction defects, product failures and defects, liens, warranties, cost overruns, timely completion, equitable adjustment claims, fee disputes, claims against architects, engineers and sureties, personal injury and other pertinent construction matters, and where a dispute does arise, having the legal tools to effectively articulate and advance your business’ position.
