Bobby Weed Golf Design Announces Expansion
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida (May 10, 2019) – Bobby Weed Golf Design (BobbyWeed.com) announces that it is expanding its team. With the addition of Joseph K. Graziani, design associate, the company is well-positioned to handle its growing project base.
“Pete Dye taught me that the next generation offers a fresh perspective that can enhance your work, and I was fortunate to be one of those guys with him,” said Bobby Weed. “We have been looking for the right person to help with some great projects we have coming on-line, and are very excited to have found Joey.”
Joseph K. Graziani, who will join the design firm at the end of May, is completing his studies at Louisiana State University, where he will graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Landscape Architecture with a minor in Horticulture. His experience includes greenkeeping work at his home course, Beau Chêne Country Club, in Mandeville, La.; golf course construction work with Duininck Golf Construction; and an internship with Bobby Weed Golf Design last year.
“What I value most about the Bobby Weed design process is the hands-on in-the-field approach: getting your hands dirty, building great golf and having fun while you do it,” said Graziani.
“I’m ecstatic to have the opportunity to bring my best to the team.”
