The Team


"Brilliant team: creative and always with the focus on fair playability." GOLFmagazin 2014

A passion for golf course planning for more than 35 years

Originally, Christoph Städler founded golf course design firm 'Golf Promotion Team' in July 1987 which became known as 'Staedler Golf Courses' from 1994 to 2021. Since landscape architect Achim Reinmuth became a partner and co-principal in 2022, our Münster-based office is trading under the name STÄDLER & REINMUTH GOLFDESIGN.

Our team of three golf course designers

Together with our long-standing team member, landscape ecologist Philipp Fleischhauer we are Germany's largest golf course design firm. They’re both landscape architects and/or ecology specialists, as well as keen golf players with single-figure handicaps. Städler and Reinmuth are long-standing Members of the European Institute of Golf Course Architects (EIGCA), an organisation that only admits golf course planners with many years of experience.

We’re passionate about our job and always totally committed to applying our expertise to meet your goals.
