Mr. Brian Idle (AIA, CEO) holds both a Bachelor and Masters degree in Architecture from the University of Illinois. He has an enviable reputation in design and management of complex projects requiring coordination of many specialty consultants and government agency approvals. His specialty is the programming and master planning of facilities for new golf course communities and major remodeling or replacement clubhouses for member owned clubs.

Being an avid golfer, Mr. Idle has taken a special interest in the planning and design of club amenities that are functional, attractive, unique, and memorable in the golf and social experiences for both members and their guests. “Much like playing the game of golf, designing great clubhouses requires developing consistency, paying attention to small details, and continually striving to improve,” according to Mr. Idle. His passion for the game of golf, with its rich history and beautiful historic venues, has inspired Mr. Idle in leading the Peacock + Lewis team’s creation of award winning amenities in notable communities worldwide.

With more than three decades of architectural experience and a vast understanding of the unique operational nuances of clubs, Mr. Idle serves as a guest lecturer on clubhouse design and renovation for the Club Management Association of America (CMAA), Club Spa Fitness Association (CSFA), National Club Strategies Summit (Golf Inc.); has authored a chapter on clubhouse master planning for the National Golf Foundation’s Managers’ Handbook, written a case study for the CMAA titles “Club Facilities and Amenities Series” and has written articles on the master planning process for BoardRoom and Club Management magazines. This experience and passion for club design has inspired the P+L team in creating an impressive portfolio of award-winning projects (garnering over seventy design awards in the past five years) and designing projects for over twenty platinum level clubs.
