Client & Project Team Testimonials

"The knowledge, ideas, and customer service John brought to the table was second to none. John's ideas, thought process and exceptional people skills made working with John a great pleasure. I found him refreshing to work with, his multiple ideas, client relations, and exuberance made me feel like we were part of a family. He used the surrounding land and terrain that encapsulated the scope of the project into a seamless fit. John is a quality individual who was concerned for the success of the project and that all parties were satisfied with the end result."

"I have had the good fortune of knowing John and working with him on numerous projects over the last 15 years. Not only is John a top notch architect, but a quality, honest person as well. It is a privilege to work with him as he has a great eye for design and a unique ability to implement his vision. I’m always impressed with his innovations and commitment to excellence. It’s always an exciting day when our company is awarded a project designed by A. John Harvey. "

“John Harvey has been a pleasure to work with over the last two years. Not only is he an excellent family man and person but his passion and dedication to the projects he embarks upon speak for themselves. He is never afraid to put the extra time in to make sure his vision matches or exceeds the expectation of his client.”

"The members and I have been working closely with John Harvey over the past 5 years. With his leadership a Master Plan was developed and we have been working off of that plan continuously. We have embarked on numerous projects around the course including bunker (re-design/new construction), green expansions, new tees, fairway widening, tree removal and planting, pond dredging/expansion, rock wall design and cart path rerouting. John has been a great asset to our club because he is very well rounded in all facets of golf architecture and construction which is very comforting from the end user to know he understands the big picture. I always say that being a golf course architect on a renovation job is one of the most difficult jobs in the world but John is always able to understand the desires of the membership and work within those parameters to deliver a high end product. Also very important to all of us is that John is always on time and on budget. I would highly recommend John for any new golf course or renovation project you may have in the near future. It truly has been a pleasure working with him and I look forward to our continued relationship."
