CMLI, BA Hons DipLA
Lead Golf Course Architect
Andrew has more than 20 years of experience in more than 20 different countries throughout Europe, the Caribbean, Asia and Africa, working for three international golf course design firms in that time. As a Lead Architect, he has undertaken projects ranging from sensitive remodelling work on old and traditional golf courses to resort master planning, and the design of Championship golf courses. His clients have included private clubs, major development groups, and owner/operators with extensive course portfolios.
With a creative approach to projects stemming from his original landscape architecture training, Andrew’s work benefits from the influence of extensive travel and his interest in the landscape, outdoor environment and other forms of design.
Design projects that Andrew has led include Roco Ki in the Dominican Republic, Ledreborg Palace in Denmark, Monte Rocha in Portugal, Vattanac Golf Resort in Cambodia, and the German 2022 Ryder Cup Bid Course redesign.
AEIGCA, MA Landscape Architecture, BSc Hons
Director of Design & Operations
With a background in landscape architecture and as an Associate Member of the European Institute of Golf Course Architects, Gareth contributes both technical and design expertise to Faldo Design. Managing the design process, he is also involved in conceptual and detailed course design and master planning for the firm’s active projects. He works closely with clients and their consultants, particularly during planning stages, supervises project requirements and logistics, and is responsible for the preparation of all graphics, construction plans and quantifications.
Born out of a passion for the natural landscape, sustainability in golf course development strongly influences Gareth’s design work, as does his interest in efficient and contemporary design. Reflecting the changing golf market, he is a strong advocate for developing alternative forms of the game – including shorter facilities and formats that make it more accessible.
His experience includes project and design work in Europe, the Americas and Asia, including at Elea Estate in Cyprus, Laguna Lang Co in Vietnam, Lough Erne in Northern Ireland, Monte Rocha in Portugal and for the German 2022 Ryder Cup Bid Course redesign.
