Prodigy Welcomes Steve Bowman to the Course Design Team
Prodigy Course Design is happy to announce a new addition to the Course Design Team, Steve Bowman. Steve is a resident of Lynchburg, VA where he coaches the Disc Golf Team at Liberty University. Steve started the team in 2010. Steve has been designing course for nearly 20 years, with an ever growing portfolio of top-end courses in Virginia and Kentucky.
When asked about his philosophy towards designing disc golf courses, Steve said:
When I think about designing a disc golf course, the first thing that comes to mind is finding something so unique about the course’s property, that I want to highlight that feature and have people experience the same flair and excitement I have when out in creation. I think design has been a basic passion of mine since my early years of designing and building mountain bike and hiking trails all throughout Central Virginia.
A disc golf course is so much more rewarding though, due to the nature of the game. Designing a great course can create a passion within the player, finding that same joy I have and it begins to spread like wild fire. When I first started designing, I think the basic profile of the course was shaped to build strengths into my own game - fairways were created to build up my own weaknesses and over time as a coach, the blueprint became more about challenging the struggles others face. My goal to close out a course though, has always been to incorporate a few amazing closing holes, where the players are craving and wanting more."
