Jerry Lemons is president and owner of Golf Links Inc. Mr. Lemons has been involved with golf course design and construction since 1982. A graduate of Murray State University, Jerry began his career working on the Kidwell - Hurdzan Designed course at Murray State University as a golf course superintendent.
Jerry's first solo design came in 1984 when word of his talent reached Princeton Country Club in Kentucky. Jerry's redesign of the Perry Maxwell layout was so successful that Old Hickory Country Club in Old Hickory, Tennessee hired Jerry for the redesign. In 1985 Jerry formed Golf Links Inc. and since then has provided golf course design services, construction management, turf grass management and business services to clients.
It is Daniel's philosophy that a golf course should be designed with sustainability at the forefront. One major aspect of sustainability is lowering maintenance needs in order to keep cost down over the long run. This spurred him, immediately after graduation, to pursue a position as an assistant course superintendent where his goal was to learn the ins and outs of the profession, and to learn to identify ways in which an architect can reduce hours in maintenance while still producing an excellent course.
In the spring of 2013, Daniel was hired by Golf Links Inc. to learn under the direction of established golf architect Jerry Lemons.
Daniel received his B.S. in Landscape Architecture with a focus on Urban Planning and Entrepreneurship from Ball State University in 2012. While in college, Daniel worked in golf course construction, including a stint at Augusta National for an outsourced golf course construction company.
In over 25 years of design work, Jerry still focuses not only on building quality golf courses for new courses but assisting past clients with the operations of their clubs.
Mr. Lemons has contributed to numerous golf publications including Golf Course News, Golf Management and Executive Golfer and the USGA Green Section.
