With David Hemstock, Steve has supplied draft routings for new build golf courses in the UK and India and detailed design drawings for projects in Eastern Europe.
Between 2000 – 2002 Steve worked as a trainee designer with Gaunt & Marnoch Ltd and then, from 2002 – 2006, with Creative Golf Design Ltd.
