Colt, representing the then-new natural style, 1914
Harry Shapland Colt (August 4, 1869 - November 21, 1951) was a golf course architect born in Highgate Englandmarker. He worked predominantly with Charles Alison, John Morrison, and Alister MacKenzie, in 1928 forming Colt, Alison & Morrison Ltd. He participated in the design of over 300 golf courses (115 on his own) in North America, South America, Europe, Australia, Asia, and Africa. Colt courses of note in the UK include Stoke Pogesmarker, Calcot Parkmarker and the East & West Courses at Wentworth Clubmarker. While it is often joked that "the sun never sets" on a course designed by architect Robert Trent Jones, this is actually true for the works of Colt and his collaborators.

Colt took a law degree at Clare Collegemarker, Cambridgemarker, and captained the Cambridge Universitymarker golf team in 1890.

In 1897 he became a Founder Member of the Royal & Ancient Rules of Golf Committeemarker.
