GOLF COURSE ARCHITECTS
The original master plan for Foster’s Farm was completed in the early 2000s by renowned golf course architect Bill Love. Today, Love protégé and former partner Brian Kington is the lead architect for Foster’s Farm and will oversee and direct the construction of the golf course, residential development, and all other club amenities, infrastructure, and facilities.
Love entered the golf course design business in the early 1980s after earning his master’s degree in landscape architecture from the University of Virginia. After Love studied under long-time architect Ed Ault, he started his own firm in 1995. In 2000, Kington began studying under Love while finishing his bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture at the University of Maryland. After over a decade working together, Love and Kington became business partners in 2014. Together they completed several successful and award-winning projects and worked at many top private clubs such as the Olympic Club in San Francisco and Club Campestre Monterrey A.C. in Monterrey, México. Love and Kington have won Best New Golf Course awards for Hunting Hawk Golf Course in Glen Allen, Virginia and Laurel Hill Golf Club in Lorton, Virginia. They have also won Renovation of the Year for their redesign of the University of Maryland Golf Course and a Green Award recognizing them as the Most Environmentally Sensitive Design Firm.
In 2020, Kington created his own design firm, Kington Golf, based in Carson City, Nevada, and is currently working on several projects across the U.S. In 2021, Kington refreshed and refined the master plan for Foster’s Farm into its current form.
