Whisper Creek Golf Resort

Christchurch, New Zealand

Faldo Design is to create an 18-hole Championship standard golf course at Spencerville near Christchurch, Canterbury.  It will form part of a new residential housing development that will also include a wetland nature reserve.

The project has already been recognised for its significant innovative economic contribution to the region and its design is environmentally driven including extensive areas of native plantings and the reinstatement of native wetlands.

Faldo's thoughts:

“New Zealand is a country which loves sport, and I’m looking forward to adding my own contribution to the country’s sporting culture. In particular, it’s going to be a privilege to play a role in Christchurch’s regeneration after such a difficult few years.”

“My architectural team does a huge amount of technical work on each design, and we enjoy getting out on site with the shapers and creating the individual strategies of each hole and visuals of the course.

“Memorability, strategy and the visual ‘wow factor’ are the three things always in my mind when designing a course like Whisper Creek.”
