Our philosophy of golf design


Our philosophy of golf design

Our position as one of the most successful golf design firms in Europe has been achieved by our long-standing reputation for creating excellent golf courses at affordable costs, keeping construction work on schedule and on budget. The focus of our design philosophy is to create a fair yet challenging design, rewarding players of all skill levels with a joyful and exciting round of golf.

Teamwork of 3 golf course architects

One of our main strengths is our powerful teamwork, which has allowed us to win most of the design competitions we have entered.

Golf design rulebook

Our design philosophy has evolved from our long experience as good players. We’ve crystallised it into our very own design rulebook. Here are some of our most important rules:

  1. Planning in harmony with the natural landscape!
  2. Each hole is different!
  3. Hard par, easy bogey!
  4. Precision and strategy count more than pure length of shot!
  5. Most obstructions within the reach of long hitters!
  6. Clear "strategic design", occasional "heroic design" and no "penal design"!
  7. Avoid blind shots!
  8. Always be sustainable!

Sustainability aspects of golf course planning - 'Sustainable Design Leader'

The central terms of sustainability like nature, water, energy, avoidance of environmental pollution, environmentally friendly material procurement and social issues are taken into account and are implemented by us every time we plan or redesign a golf course.
