Clifton, Ezell and Clifton
The Clifton, Ezell, and Clifton Golf Design Group consists of the three brilliant golf course architects Lloyd M. Clifton, Kenneth C. Ezell, and George M. Clifton. Lloyd, the pioneer and founding member of the CEC Golf Design passed away in 2013, but his wisdom continues to guide George and Kenneth.
CEC's motto is, “Championship Success by Design,” and they have truly brought this to life through their world-class designs for golf communities and courses. Collectively they have over 76 years of experience in the design and management of various golf ventures. This benefits clients in terms of their technical skills as well as their vast business experience creating successful projects.
CEC Golf Design Group is also a leading consultant in the preparation of integrated pesticide management plans and best management practices for golf courses. This assists their clients in solving the glut of environmental issues pressuring each project's success. In addition, their ornamental and horticulture backgrounds help to facilitate the owners' selection and implementation of effective golf course programs to deal with trees, landscape, and course irrigation.
Clifton, Ezell and Clifton's works are a reflection of how efficient and effective they are as course designers and architects. Over the past twenty-five-plus years the CEC Golf Design Group has designed and had constructed more golf courses in Central Florida than any other firm. They have been awarded both as a group and individually, and many builders and developers believe they are the best golf course design and project management team in the business
