The pairing of Lee Schmidt and Brian Curley brings together two individuals with a common passion for the game of golf, its history and the satisfying reward of implementing its design and construction. Together we bring experience and prominent involvement in the planning, design and construction of over 100 courses. At the core of these past accomplishments lie world renowned courses done with the likes of Pete Dye, Nick Faldo, Fred Couples, Jack Nicklaus and more. Our history of creating a myriad of golf course developments, from stand alone golf courses, to massive golf course communities, throughout varied environments across the globe, has formed the backbone for our company to create any successful project which will meet the vision of our clients, and exceed their expectations.
In creating the golf course at Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club, the highly respected Scottsdale-based golf design firm of Schmidt-Curley Design, Inc. teamed with PGA Tour star Fred Couples.
Ak-Chin Southern Dunes was the sixth collaboration between Schmidt-Curley and Fred Couples, following The Plantation and The Palms in the Palm Springs area, Southern Oaks Country Club in Houston, Talega in San Clemente, California and The Crosby Estate in Rancho Santa Fe, California.
