We are inspired to be more thoughtful and creative to offer highly functional, strategic, beautiful and environmentally beneficial golf courses.

Project Updates

Park Ridge Country Club

April 16, 2019

Martin Design is currently preparing a bunker renovation plan, as well as exploring options to increase the practice capabilities of this great private club.  Bunker improvement planning will review style, aesthetic, maintenance requirements, playability and relevance.

Carillon Club

April 16, 2019

This June, Martin Design and Hollembeak Golf Construction renovated the bunkers and made drainage improvements at Carillon Club in Naperville.  This unique three hole golf course has undergone minor revisions to improve the bunker conditions, improve drainage and reduce maintenance for the homeowners.  

Settler's Hill Golf Course

April 16, 2019

After years attempting to accommodate a practice facility at Settler's Hill Golf Course in Geneva, Illinois work will begin later in 2020.  The permitting, regulatory and environmental issues presented at Settler's Hill are numerous, and the planning, design and execution of this project needed to accommodate a new World-Class Cross Country Track on the landfill and the resultant stormwater runoff. Ultimately, this new facility will be coordinated with a new clubhouse and clubhouse location for all visitors to Settlers Hill. This project, coordinated with the Forest Preserve District of Kane County, Kane County, Waste Management and Weaver Consultants will continue planning through this year.

Naperville Park District Golf Courses

April 16, 2019

Springbrook and Naperbrook Golf Courses have completed Master Improvement Planning. Improvements include Irrigation, drainage, bunkers, tees, tree cover, playability, maintenance issues, paths, tees and green surrounds will all be reviewed as part of the improvements.  Phasing options and implementation alternatives are being considered and detailed planning for both should begin this summer.
