Golf Course Architecture
Golf Course Design & Consultation
Golf Course Construction
Every land use has an impact on the
environment. An Environmental Impact Study determines the
impacts and calculates their intensity.
Not all impacts are negative, however
almost all land uses do have some degree of negative
impact, at least in someone's mind.
John F Yuhas has the expertise to determine those impacts,
measure their intensity, ascertain whether they are
positive or negative. If negative, we recommend ways to
eliminate or mitigate those impacts.
Usually every design project we submit
for review, but especially golf course designs, require
that at least a State Environmental Quality Review
(SEQR) document be completed and submitted with the
project as a formal part of the application. If wetlands
or protected waterways are involved, applications and
notices of intent (NOI's) must be filed with
Environmental Conservation Depts. and the Army Corps of
Engineers. Environmental Impact Studies must be done to
complete these documents.
John F Yuhas is also capable
of doing, and has done many, Wetland Delineations, Evaluations, Studies, and Reports that
meet New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation and/or U. S.
Army Corps of Engineers guidelines.
We are now able to show any site as a Digital Terrain Model (DTM), which shows true grades and elevations, and all features of the site in a realistic 3-D context. An example of a DTM for a golf course J. F. Yuhas designed, see the Golf Course Architecture page.
