Golf & The Environment

Brian Kington discovered the art of designing golf holes at an early age in Connecticut. Continuing this unique passion in high school Brian completed a senior year independent study project focused on the planning and design of a golf course on local land close to his home. In 1998 he accepted a scholarship to the Landscape Architecture program at the University of Maryland.

In 2000 Brian joined Bill Love's firm as an intern and henceforth formally began his professional career in golf course design. After earning an undergraduate degree in Landscape Architecture in 2002 he continued working with Love as an associate designer. Brian has worked on over 80 projects involving the planning, design and development of championship golf courses, renovation of existing courses, residential communities, wildlife preservations, trail systems and other alternative recreational facilities, and parks and open spaces throughout North America.

In 2014 Brian and Bill formed a partnership under the name Love & Kington Golf Course Design and Land Planning. During their tenure Love and Kington have earned several achievements including Best New Affordable Golf Course, Renovation of the Year and Most Environmentally Friendly Design Firm.

Brian is an outspoken advocate of environmentally sensitive design and development. He is involved in several efforts aimed at educating people about the mutually beneficial interdependent relationship of golf and the environment and is a frequent lecturer to university students and private organizations. Brian works with First Tee chapters to enhance their facilities and promote the game of golf.

Prior to joining the company Brian gained experience in golf course maintenance and operation, and land development and management.
