The greatest courses through time have always reflected a very minimalist manipulation of a site's natural contours. Simply stated, golf holes should reflect their site and contribute, rather than detract from a site's biodiversity. "As an environmentalist, its important to me that we incorporate bio-diversity into each design. Bio-diversity incorporates and attracts different species to exist on a site," says Craig. Features should appear natural. Larger, flowing landforms are favored over articulated, manufactured shaping. Natural looking features are also easier to maintain than sharp, abrupt or small features peppering a golf hole. Our goal is to create the most environmentally sensitive and biologically diverse habitats we can through integration of indigenous vegetation, wildlife corridors, vegetative buffers and natural filtration systems into both new and existing facilities.
