Tom Fazio

Thomas Fazio (born February 10, 1945) is the most awarded active American architect in the game and responsible for some of the most expensive layouts in golf history. Tom’s design reputation is one of immaculate, lavish layouts that are ever-appealing on the eye and easy for all to understand. His greatest skill is really as a landscape architect, as all his tracks are beautiful to look at and often holes are framed by bunkers and hazards that look to have been built to enhance a landscape photograph. 

Fazio graduated in 1962 from Lansdale Catholic High School and was inducted into its "Hall of Fame" in 2007. He began his career in golf course design with his family's firm in suburban Philadelphia, which he left to establish his own firm in Jupiter, Florida in 1972. He is the nephew of George Fazio, who often credited Tom with jump-starting his own career in golf course architecture. 

Fazio has designed more than 120 courses and has more ranked among the top 100 in the U.S. than anyone else. His individual honours include Best Modern Day Golf Course Architect, which he received from Golf Digest Magazine three times. In 1995, Fazio became only the second course architect to receive the highest recognition awarded by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America - The Old Tom Morris Award.
