Ultra-modern sights easily strain the eye – classics are more appealing in the long term. This also applies to golf courses. We plan courses which do not appeal for a mere five to ten years but exude timeless beauty for decades to come. We achieve this by blending golf courses into the landscape, so they are in harmony with nature. This in turn means that the site and its characteristics need to be thoroughly analysed. One-off visits followed by plans drafted by computer are therefore taboo for us. Our designs are based on the characteristics of each site. In the end, this is the only way to preserve natural habitats and to create new semi-natural spaces, even if and when huge amounts of soil have to be shifted.
Ecology and sustainability
In line with our design philosophy we use all methods of ecological planning and construction, and try to preserve as many natural and semi-natural features as possible. If the site is of little or no ecological value, we create areas that are close to nature to enhance the beauty and diversity of nature. Only golf courses which are embedded in a natural or semi-natural habitat can convey the sense of tranquillity and peace that golfers seek while playing a round of golf. Moreover, we use all modern construction methods to protect the environment.
Our golf courses are designed to ensure that they can be maintained in an ecological and economical manner. This does not mean a decrease but rather an increase in quality. Resources that are not tied up are thus available for other useful purposes.
