We believe Golf should:
Offer Width and Options;
Be environmentally sensitive;
Consider the Course Maturation; &
Be economically sustainable.
We touch the land gently so golfers can appreciate these extraordinary landscapes.
Golf is about golfers and the simple interaction of man and nature.
Our goal is to make that interaction remarkable.
As stewards of the environment and caretakers of golf we are privileged to develop courses that will be recognized as classic tests of golf and an exceptional benefit to the community. Our success can be traced to a commitment to the client, the game of golf and our respect for the land.
We have projects that are award winning and have received critical acclaim. But, more importantly, our work is environmentally beneficial, economically successful and operationally efficient.
We produce beautifully satisfying golf experiences.
Martin Design posseses the skill, leadership, talent and disposition to navigate the challenges of new course development. Regardless of the site ..... on expansive rolling prairies and scattered wetlands of central Wisconsin; through stands of hardwoods and on the rocky terrain of southwest Missouri; or municipal facilities in urban settings.....we have been successful at meeting the project goals and delivering golf course design solutions for public, private, resort or residential golf course communities
Renovation requires sensitivity to the existing golf course, its heritage, the operations and the golfer.
Our clientele is quick to recommend our ability to seamlessly integrate new improvements with the site conditions, provide detailed plans and execute the improvements within the budget and phasing guidelines. In each case, we have provided vision, experience and architectural excellence for our clients and golfers of all abilities.
Environmental Benefit / Leadership
We take an environmentally sensitive approach in all of our work. We seek to find positive relationships and operational benefit to environmentally 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
Practice & Alternative
Thoughtful development of these facilities promotes engaging experiences and purposeful practice, learning and play.
Martin Design has developed a wide range of practice facilities, alternative or "executive" golf experiences and learning facilities for public and private clubs. Creating these unique facilities allows greater access and better performance, deepening the golf experience.
