David Ginkel Design has no preconceived ideas about the style
of a golf course. Our philosophy is anytime a certain style
is forced on a golf course the end result will not only look
out of place but will cost more to build and eventually
maintain. We take what the site offers and enhance it
into a enjoyable, maintainable and playable golf course.
We believe that every project we work on should have its own
style and unique character. The most successful golf
courses in the world are rarely identified by the architects
style but rather by how enjoyable they are to play.
Features such as greens, tees, fairways, sand bunkers, grass
bunkers, water hazards, mounding and native vegetation will
differ on each project. We do not believe that all features
belong on all golf courses. We design features specifically
to fit each golf course and locate them in order to create
challenging and strategic shot values for all golfers.
