November 13, By Brad King Pinehurst-based golf course architect Richard Mandell has too much on his plate these days to stress about the challenges facing his industry. Despite new course construction plummeting during in the past decade, Mandell has remained a busy man.

For more than a decade, Mandell taught one of the only fully accredited, professionally taught classes on golf course architecture at North Carolina State University.
