AEIGCA, MA Landscape Architecture, BSc Hons
Director of Design & Operations
With a background in landscape architecture, Gareth is an Associate Member of the European Institute of Golf Course Architects and Chairman of its Sustainability Committee. He contributes both technical and design expertise to Faldo Design, administering the firm’s business growth and development and as part of the team for active projects, delivering conceptual and detailed course design and master planning. He works closely with clients and their consultants, particularly during planning stages, supervises project requirements and logistics, and oversees preparation of all graphics, construction plans and quantification.
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 short course and practice facilities – and works closely with Sir Nick in developing design solutions that make the game more accessible.
His experience includes project and design work in Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Middle East – 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.
