Roy Case has been in practice in the United States since 1988. Originally an Architect and Land Planner by profession, Mr. Case is now a golf course designer who is becoming renowned for his ability to work creatively and economically with difficult sites, both in golf-centered real estate developments, land recycling projects, and in pure golf layouts. His ability to create good golf on environmentally sensitive, and environmentally damaged sites, has met with great success, and has enabled golf courses to be built on land that was previously thought to be undevelopable.

Mr. Case has produced thought provoking designs and profitable investments, in both the public and private sector. His courses have proved to be popular with all grades of golfers, including ladies, who appreciate the special consideration given to them in the design process. Some of his courses have hosted mini-tour events and professional qualifying rounds including the U.S. Open.

His long experience in the building construction and land development fields in the United States, Jamaica, the Caribbean and Central America, has enabled him to bring to golf projects a very keen understanding of how design decisions affect the bottom line in a variety of environments, economies and locations. However this solid practical base has by no means stifled his creativity and his courses are highly rated in terms of physical beauty, visual interest and quality of golf, and have won a number of awards and many high ratings.

Cobblestone has been rated by Golfweek as one of the top 50 courses in the South East United States. It has also been rated #30 in Florida (out of over 1,100) by a golfers poll, and is featured in a photographic display at the Golf Hall of Fame, at the World Golf Village in St Augustine, Florida. The Palm Beach Gardens Municipal course has helped to demonstrate, to all who play it, the delicate nature of our environment and the need to carefully preserve it. Minisceongo, in New York, has welcomed Golf Digest and Golf Magazine as Corporate Members. The Links at Safehaven, in Grand Cayman, hosted the 1997 Caribbean Championships, and was selected as the most enjoyable Golf Course in the Caribbean in 1997 and 1998 by readers of a prestigious European travel magazine. In 1994 Mr. Case had the honor of being selected to design a high profile, 27 hole Public Golf Facility for Palm Beach County, the world capital of golf. The Okaheelee Golf Club opened in November 1995. The course has received extraordinarily positive response from all levels of golfers, and from management. It became financially self sufficient in its second year, and is regularly voted the most popular public course in the county, by local golfers. As a result of this he has been appointed to design another 27 hole complex for the County, to be sited just west of Boca Raton. Mr. Case’s New Jersey National was rated the #2 daily fee course in the State, by the State Golf Association, with the back nine being mentioned as perhaps the best in this golf rich State. Within the last year he was selected to design up to 72 holes by the Hackensack/Meadowlands Development Commission within a long term Master Development Plan for lands just south of the Giants Stadium. Also, Palm Beach County Solid Waste Authority commissioned the design of a Junior Golf Course and Learning Center, to be built on their closed Lantana landfill. This facility will be the most comprehensive Junior Golf teaching facility in the U.S.A.

Since 1997 Mr. Case has served as a design consultant to the Arnold Palmer Management Company on the redesign of three golf clubs. The most recent one was the substantial redesign of 36 holes at Memphis National, Tennessee, which involved the solving of major flooding and drainage problems. It has opened to rave reviews from the local golfing public, and hosted a U.S. Open Qualifier in 1999.

Also, in 1995, Mr. Case was appointed by the Government of St. Lucia, West Indies, to prepare a Master Plan for Bella Rosa Estates, including a golf course and resort development, dramatically sited on over 400 acres of the ruggedly beautiful North East coast of the island. He is now in discussion with the Government of St. Lucia, W.I. concerning a golf destination resort.

In 1996 Mr. Case reached an agreement to collaborate with Sam and Jack Snead on design commissions and to assist in the creation of the Sam Snead Trail in Virginia. That relationship ended amicably in late 1999 and the likelihood of working together still exists.

In 1997 Mr. Case was invited to visit the State of Ceara, Brazil to consult on the preparation of a Master Plan for golf, as part of their Tourism development program. In 1998 he was appointed to produce a Master Plan for a prominent land owner in Barbados. Also, he was appointed by the Jamaican Urban Development Commission in 1998 to advise them on the development of three new golf course projects. Projects in Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic, and in Cancun, Mexico are in the early stages of design.

In 1998 Mr. Case was appointed by EnCap Golf of Florida, whose parent company specializes in environmental rehabilitation, to design a series of courses, to be built nation wide, on closed landfills. The first 36 holes, Pierce Junction G.C., will open in 2001 in Houston, Texas. Brownfield golf development now forms a significant portion of the practice with involvement on ten different sites containing over 200 holes of golf.

Mr. Case, a week-end 8 handicapper, has also been involved in other areas of the game at Executive level. He served as Secretary of the PGA of Jamaica from 1973 to 1976. He was a Director of the Palm Beach County Golf Association from 1983 to 1988, serving as Chairman for the final two years, and he has served on the Board of the Florida Golf Council. He won the County 55 and over age group Championship in 1989.

He also has a long history as a sports journalist in radio, television and print. His articles have been published in the Golf Reporter magazine, the Golf Business Report and in the New York Times real estate section. He appeared on the Sports Channel in April 1991 in a segment featuring golf and the environment.
