Philosophy of Design

The golfer attacks, the designer defends. Such is the adversarial relationship that defines the creation of a golf course. At one extreme, it is easy to create a course where few would ever break a hundred. At the other, a course too easily defended quickly results in a loss of interest. The overriding objective of good course design is the balance between these extremes, creating an effective and rewarding experience for golfers at all levels of play. In order to accomplish this objective, our design philosophy centers upon three major design elements: Flexibility, Memorability, and Natural Beauty.
