Technology is certainly important in design, but we at Integrative Golf Design believe it's the human touch that creates genuine golf experiences.
No set of plans, no matter how specific or detailed, can replace the serendipitous creativity of the human mind. We celebrate the subtle virtues of our craft and that is why we insist on personally overseeing the shaping work ourselves. This methodology allows us the freedom and flexibility to properly execute the design's intent while ensuring quality and artistry are never sacrificed.
It is our belief that the success of a great golf course development depends on four crucial elements; location, design, construction, and maintenance. We do not believe these elements are mutually exclusive either. This is why at Integrative Golf Design we carefully consider all potential factors before engaging a golf course project. We follow a thorough design process to ensure all facets of the project are accounted for and considered before any dirt is moved.
Factors such as; project feasibility, site analysis, construction logistics, operating budget and maintenance/grow-in requirements are all considered in depth from the very beginning of a project.
Using this site specific, reality-based information as our foundation, we can then confidently guide the design process forward. We believe such due diligence is essential in creating a sensible golf course development and will result in a much more thoughtful and functional final product.
Once actual earthworks begin, we are very reactive to the landscape ensuring we don't 'over-cook' any natural looking subtleties or interesting characteristics. At Integrative Golf Design, our Modus Operandi is to ensure that beauty and utility are always given equal thought and never be at odds. We strive to achieve excellence in our craft to create fun, exciting, and memorable golf courses for all skill levels to enjoy.
