Jim Wagner on Contours, Cavemen, and Hanse Golf Course Design's Latest Projects

Jim Wagner is the longtime design partner at Hanse Golf Course Design and the head of the firm’s Caveman Construction crew. With the design-build approach on the rise in golf course architecture, Jim’s on-the-ground knowledge is more relevant than ever. He took some time away from an in-progress build at Jonathan’s Landing in Florida to chat with Andy Johnson about working with contractors, mentoring shapers, crafting contours, and staying hands-on as the Hanse name gets bigger. They also touch on new projects at PGA Frisco and West Palm Beach.
