As a Project Architect, Michael Roach has been involved in all phases of the design process for a wide variety of recreation facilities, such as recreation centers, aquatic parks and public and private golf course clubhouse facilities. He has more than 35 years of experience working on various projects and design concepts including additions and renovations of golf course facilities. Michael’s knowledge of complex design requirements and understanding of facility operations make him a particularly effective team member.
Michael’s hobbies include bass guitar, gardening, and golf, which he has been involved in since his grandfather taught him how to hold a club at a young age. He grew up playing golf competitively and caddying and was lucky enough to caddy consecutive years at the Western Open for Jim Dent and then Miller Barber. The next year he caddied in a group that included Jack Nicklaus, where Mike was the only caddy who knew the course. Jack told Mike he’d be asking his advice throughout the round. Quite a thrill for a then 18-year-old!
