INFORMATION ON PRACTICE:

Jim Barrett has been involved in golf course design and construction since 1970. After early employment with a golf course contractor, he joined Robert Trent Jones, Inc. in 1972. During 13 years as a design associate and irrigation designer with that firm, he was involved in numerous golf projects throughout the United States, Europe, and the Caribbean Islands.

In 1985 he left RTJ, Inc. to form James Barrett Associates, an independent consulting and design firm which specializes exclusively in golf course irrigation. JBA's goal is quality design which meets the needs of the client with efficient, reliable and substainable systems. The systems are sensitive to the environment and to the architectural integrity of the golf course.

Jim has designed more than 300 golf course irrigation systems, including those at 19 of the GOLF DIGEST magazine Top 100 Courses in the US, and 4 of the top 10. He has worked with many well-known architects on both new construction and remodeling projects. He has also worked directly with many private clubs and municipal courses to evaluate existing systems and to design modifications or complete replacement systems. He has worked with all the major irrigation manufacturers, and most of the major installers in the country.

Jim is a past president of ASIC, past president of the Northeast Chapter, past chairman of the IA Certification Board, and current member of the IA Board of Directors.
