In December, Rick Robbins, ASGCA, was asked to serve as a member of the Triangle Region chapter of The First Tee, a program that uses golf as a way to introduce life skills to youth groups, many of which would not otherwise have access to golf facilities. Rick had previously donated his time to design a First Tee practice facility for the Charlotte, NC chapter in the 1990's and was honored to be asked to serve on the board of his home region. According to Rick, "I feel like golf has provided me with some of my greatest life experiences as well as providing me with a profession I have loved for over 38 years, and I hope this is a chance to pay something back to the game."

To truly appreciate how deeply entrenched in the world of golf Rick Robbins is, you would have to span multiple generations of Robbins family lineage, experience, and passion. His grandfather was a nurseryman and developer, leading to the start of the Robbins family tourist attractions at The Blowing Rock, a scenic rock formation from which the town of Blowing Rock received its name. Robbins grew up in golf communities and around some of the country's most influential people in golf.
...
Robbins later moved to Nicklaus/Sierra Development Corporation where he helped in the development of many Jack Nicklaus Communities and then to Golden Bear Design, where he became a Senior Design Associate in the Hong Kong office. His innate talent for creating courses that are not only enjoyable but take into account the natural beauty of the land can easily be seen in every project he touches.
Robbins has been designing courses with his firm, Robbins & Associates International, since 1991. Headquartered in Cary, North Carolina, Robbins is surrounded by familiarity including his alma mater, North Carolina State University School of Design, as well as numerous historical points of interest and tourism sites that the Robbins family has been instrumental in developing over the years.
...
To make this happen, Robbins maintains his registration as a licensed landscape architect, which requires a minimum of ten hours of education annually, and is he also plays an active role in many professional organizations. Robbins has also served as the American Society of Golf Course Architects Chairman of Membership for two years and will be President of the Society beginning in April of 2013. Rick is a member of the Urban Land Institute and American Society of Landscape Architects, as well as serving on the North Carolina Golf Panel and the China Top Ten Golf Committee. Rick is currently serving as a member of the Board of Directors for the Raleigh/Triangle Chapter of The First Tee. Since that is not enough to keep him busy, Robbins also participates in speaking engagements and exhibitions, which keep him abreast of the most up-to-date practices related to his work.

"I am very excited about this project for many reasons" stated Rick Robbins.

"The long-term growth of golf as a popular sport in China will depend on access by the younger generation to places like this to learn the game."

Rick Robbins provided design services for a complete renovation of all 18 greens complexes and the SAS Tournament marked the reopening of the course for play.
Tournament players, officials and long-time members of the club have had high praise for the results of the renovation work. "Prestonwood Country Club's courses were built over a long period of time and in many stages of expansion from the original 27-hole facility to its current 54 holes. "This resulted in the use of different grasses, different construction methods and different design standards that provided great inconsistencies from one course to another and even within each course", explained Rick Robbins. "The owner wants to get all 3 courses into a more uniform condition and then be able to provide a maintenance program that works for all the facility", Robbins continued.
At this time, plans have been prepared and bids received for the next phase of work which is scheduled to begin on the Fairways Course in November. The Highlands Course will then be renovated in 2011, completing the work on all 3 courses. "This is a great opportunity and responsibility for me", says Robbins. "Since I live on the 14th hole of the Fairways Course and have been a member here since 1993, there is a lot of "suggestion and oversight" from my golfing buddies who are quick to let me know if they like what I am doing or not."
Robbins signs on for an unique opportunity

"The land is one of the most amazing pieces of property I have ever seen in 37 years of golf course design" says Rick Robbins, President of Robbins & Associates. "I never expected to go to south China and be able to find over 4,000 acres of land that looks just like the Highlands of Scotland" he added.
...
"This is an association of firms that have worked together very cooperatively on several projects", says Rick Robbins, President of Robbins & Associates. "We have found it to be very effective to be able to give our new development clients golf course design, master planning, engineering, architecture and environmental evaluation services all in a single package", Robbins continued.
...
"We have found that a great deal of time and money can be saved by developers, especially in the early stages of developments, by having the ability to actively coordinate the planning efforts rather than have many disassociated firms working independently" Robbins concluded.

Rick Robbins sees plenty of fun for everyone at new development outside Leland....
There's a gleam in architect Rick Robbins' eyes and a lilt in his voice as he describes one aspect of Compass Pointe, a golf course under construction just west of Leland on U.S. 74/76.
He paints a clear picture of multiple tee boxes, a tree-lined fairway giving golfers options and angles of attack. Thing is, he's only talking about the 27-hole facility's driving range.
...
Robbins grew up in Western N.C., born to a golfing family that developed both courses and tourist sites such as Tweetsie Railroad.
After graduating from the N.C. State School of Design, he worked under the esteemed team of Bruce Devlin and Robert Van Hagge, and later Jack Nicklaus. He opened his own firm in Cary in 1991.
Robbins has a foothold in Asia, where he spends roughly two weeks each month and expects to have 255 holes under construction by the end of the year.
Closer to home, he's also handling projects at Prestonwood in Cary, The Coves at Round Mountain in Lenoir and Wilderness Trail in Banner Elk.
He's excited about the potential of Compass Pointe.
The course is an infant, about a dozen holes have been roughly shaped, the boundary lines drawn. Riding around the property, Robbins dispensed subtle strategic tips while painting a broader picture of what the course will look like when it opens by 2012.
"I want the good player to feel like he can have the driver in his hand and feel comfortable," he said, while describing the ninth hole on the course's East nine, a par 5 reachable in two shots by the longest hitters. "I don't want players to have to fit a shot in. And if they drive it to the end of this fairway they are on an upslope, rewarded, not penalized."
Of course, Robbins also kept in mind the average player. Compass Pointe plans to open as semi-private: offering memberships but also be open to the public. Robbins built friendly holes such as No. 1 on the West side, a slight dogleg right par 4 that doesn't levy a severe penalty for golfers slicing their opening drive. Along those lines, each hole will also feature a family tee, roughly 80-120 yards from the green.
Standing on the site of the future clubhouse, Robbins described his plan behind the ninth hole on the North course, a shortish, downhill par 5, with plateaus in the fairway offering flat lies and tempting players to attempt to hit the green in two.
