United States Golf Association

The United States Golf Association is the national association of golf courses, clubs, and facilities. It is also the governing body of golf for the United States and Mexico. The USGA’s 300-acre headquarters campus in New Jersey comprises three buildings: 1919 John Russell Pope Museum, Administration, and Test Center.

Altieri performed master planning for the campus in 2012 and completed the multi-phased project in 2018. The first phase included a full replacement of the central heating and cooling plants in the Administration building. Construction was phased so that the building was never without needed systems. The second phase included construction of an addition to the USGA museum to house the new Nicklaus Room, highlighting the career of golf Hall-of-Famer Jack Nicklaus.

The third and fourth phases consisted of a full retrofit and upgrade of office and hospitality spaces in the Administration building. The renovations provided the USGA with much needed office and collaboration space. Also included was an indoor putting green, golf simulator, exercise area, and golf entertainment area – Arnie’s Place named after Arnold Palmer.
