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.
