Environmental Leadership

We take an environmentally sensitive approach in all of our work. We seek to find positive relationships and operational benefit to these sustainable solutions.

We appreciate nuance and subtlety and admire grandeur and majesty. We see golf course architecture as an opportunity to establish an exceptional interaction between man and the natural environment while solving cultural, environmental or engineering requirements.  

 

Martin Design embraces principles that allow us to preserve, restore and improve the natural environment while providing our clientele with highly functional, economically successful and environmentally sustainable golf courses. If our work can mitigate, or even improve the local ecology, the result is better… for everyone
