OUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY is influenced by the natural links courses of the British Isles. Great courses follow the lay of the land. They are wonderful to view and exciting to play. Often, they do not take a lot of money to build. Players of all ages and abilities enjoy the game played on the links.

We have traveled extensively to study these historic courses and bring a links touch to every course we design. The body of our work has covered a variety of terrain and climates. Our projects range from stand-alone daily fee to high-end resort and residential real estate developments. Every design reflects our lifelong passion for golf. These courses challenge the experts and encourage the beginners, while respecting the history of the game.

OUR DESIGN PROCESS begins by developing an understanding of our clients’ objectives. It is great when we can help them pick the land for the course. The site has a lot to do with a layout’s character and cost. We also collaborate with other consultants to make sure all elements of the project are working together. Once we have an idea of what is desired, we walk the ground and study the topography maps before developing the initial routing for the course. After the routing is developed, we walk the site again to see if we are taking the best advantage of significant features and views.

When the routing is finalized, we prepare a complete set of plans and specifications for building the course. This allows us to develop accurate cost estimates and receive firm pricing from contractors.

As part of our standard service, we make regular trips to the course throughout construction to give direction regarding everything from grading and feature shaping to finish work and final grassing lines. We also return to consult on grow-in and maintenance procedures. This level of supervision not only results in the best possible work, but also safeguards the client’s investment. Construction done right the first time will be of lasting character.
