Sir Nick and his team of architects are deeply passionate in creating unique golf experiences that challenge and interest golfers of all abilities. Working closely with its clients, Faldo Design identifies and develops golfing solutions that exceed expectations and deliver enduring social, commercial and environmental opportunities. Grown from Sir Nick’s holistic understanding of the game, courses, and the relationship between the two, Faldo Design visualises each site’s inherent golfing strategy and design to create experiences that are a true fit in its surroundings. Every Faldo Design course starts with the unique local identity of the site as its greatest inspiration, and this is at the very core of the team’s creative development process. From championship, par three and alternative course layouts, to world-class practice facilities, five key pillars of design define its work – strategy, memorability, playability, sustainability and endless enjoyment. Since its inception over 25 years ago, the Faldo team has now designed and created unique golf courses on five continents and in 23 different countries and uses its breadth of experience and architectural expertise to support clients to creating leading golf solutions.
