We strive to achieve excellence in our craft and create fun, exciting, and memorable golf course experiences for all skill levels to enjoy.
We believe in creating strategic 'dilemmas' to promote skillful and thoughtful play. Such an experience should be fun and enjoyable, no matter what ones' skill level, and provide players with an opportunity to match their mental agility with their physical ability.
We are believers that golf is a sport, a game, a pastime, and a hobby all wrapped into one. It is a match against yourself, your opponent, and the natural features of the golf landscape.
The enduring allure of golf is executing a difficult or creative shot in the time of need. The role of the golf course architect is to provide an arena for such shot making to take place.
Therefor, we believe the key to great golf course architecture is to marry natural interest with shot making variety. A golf journey should test and entice a player to choose their own adventure and make deliberate decisions along the way. With all the ups and downs, and twists and turns, this journey should be a rollercoaster ride of emotions; full of surprises, challenges, triumphs, and defeats.
A good design will ask the golfer to think, make decisions, and take calculated risks throughout a round. It is 'the thrill of accomplishment' and the satisfaction of a great shot that gets so many hooked on the game in the first place -- it's what makes the game FUN!
At Integrative Golf Design we believe it is the golf course architect's duty to instill not just the personality and strategy into the design, but the potential for fun too. If successful, such a course will not become dated, boring, or repetitive and will continue to tempt and challenge players round after round.
