Faldo Design strives to create golf holes
Natural Environments

The origins of golf are rooted in the irregular rugged linksland over which the game was first played. Many classic courses have grown out of similar environments and these, along with the architects that brought them to life, have always influenced Sir Nick Faldo and his architects’ design approach.

A great course springs from its natural environment.

An intimate knowledge of natural terrain is at the very heart of golf – a supreme understanding of its nuances and an ability to unravel its mysteries is the reason why Nick Faldo has been successful as a player and as a course designer. By studying and understanding the physical and ecological characteristics of a site, Faldo Design strives to create golf holes that complement and respond to the natural flow of the landscape.
