WHO WE ARE

About Us

Quitno Golf Designs, Inc. is a Midwest-based firm dedicated to the advancement of golf course design, redevelopment and the long-term growth of the game. All of our work at QGD is diverse in its scope, but united by one common goal: providing simple, elegant solutions that make our clients successful.

 

 

 

 

EARLY BEGINNINGS
In 1996, with a Bachelors degree in Landscape Architecture from Ball State University, Todd Quitno joined the firm of Lohmann Golf Designs, Inc. as a design associate where he learned the nuances of golf course architecture from firm founder and mentor, Bob Lohmann. With the golf construction boom happening at the time, things were busy at LGD and Todd was quickly elevated to Senior Project Architect where he led both new course and renovation projects for the next two decades.  In 2018, Todd was promoted to Partner and Senior Vice President of Design, advancing the future direction of the company and prompting a change of company name to Lohmann Quitno Golf Course Architects, Inc.


Todd is an active member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects

STAYING TRUE WHILE MOVING FORWARD
In July 2022, following the retirement of Mr. Lohmann, Todd began his own firm, Quitno Golf Designs, Inc., to carry on the exemplary work of his predecessor and continue growing the game of golf. Specializing in both new golf course design and renovation, at QGD we understand the ever-changing demands of the public and private golf markets and champion the idea of golf course improvements that maximize long-term returns.  At QGD, we believe sustaining the game for future generations means delivering compelling architecture that is efficient to maintain and accessible for all user types.

MAKING GOLF BETTER BY MAKING BETTER GOLF
What animates our work the most these days is a continual effort to adapt to changes in the industry (styles, equipment, environment, etc.) and a simple desire to make the game better through meaningful, effective course improvements. There’s a new emphasis in golf design that has the industry focused on time and fun, because that is what golfers want… to play golf on courses that take less time, to have an experience that makes them feel good, to be outside with family and friends, and to have those experiences over and over at a price they can afford.

THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS NO. 1
Customer service can be the difference between beating the competition and lagging behind. We stress that with our clients’ in their approach to operations and believe it is the hallmark of our own work.  Our goal is to always provide service that makes our clients want to come back and do business with us again, and we have a long list of highly-satisfied, repeat clients in both the Public and Private markets, some stretching over three decades.

Testimonials

“Comments about the renovation at Westmoor have been overwhelmingly positive and many in the community, who are not members, have expressed their desire to be invited to play. We cannot thank Bob and Todd enough for maintaining their patience for so many years. I am pleased that our companies have such a mutually beneficial relationship and together we have persevered through some difficult challenges to create an outstanding golf facility.”

Joseph C. Coan, CCM
Chief Operating Officer, Westmoor Country Club

"As Golf Course Superintendent at Tippecanoe Lake Country Club, it has been my pleasure to be involved in two major projects with Bob and Todd, both completed on time and at budget. The Lohmann Quitno team is wonderful to work with, and our membership is very pleased with the results. In fact, our membership has grown since the completion of the projects and the excitement has them continuously asking me: ‘What's next?’”

Ronald J. Forks
Golf Course Superintendent, Tippecanoe Lake Country Club

“Like any facility contemplating a project, we had a vision of what we wanted. It takes a talented and focused company to interpret someone else’s vision and provide a product that compliments it exactly. The Lohmann Quitno team has that talent and focus. They provided us with a facility that meets every expectation we laid in front of them and one that we are extremely proud of. The foresight, planning and execution Bob and Todd brought to the table positioned Indian Creek well for many years to come.”

Jim Nedrow GCS
Superintendent, Indian Creek Golf Course

“During the past 25+ years I have worked directly with Todd and his predecessor, Bob Lohmann, at both of our golf facilities on a diverse range of projects. Both have demonstrated a passion and commitment to meeting or exceeding our expectations on each project, understanding the unique challenges that we face at each of our golf facilities and developing solutions that meet player expectations and that are cost effective. This expertise has been a big key to our success!”

“The work that we have accomplished to date has been extremely well received by our members.
