Golf Course Planning

Golf & Land Design has specialized in the planning and construction of golf courses, since 1984. We provide next to all planning activities – from the preliminary layout to the development of technical details. This will range from a first layout and cost estimate through all planning and permission phases, site supervision, cost control and, if desired, after-service to the client. We offer complete planning services and site supervision for your project, both to Central European standards (e.g. the German HOAI) or to International and English standards
We offer design services for new projects, redesigns and renovation of golf courses.

Beyond normal services

Golf & Land Design can provide services which go beyond the standard services you will find at other golf architecture firms. Thanks to our internal programming of software we are able to speed up tedious CAD related work which means we produce high quality plans quickly, giving us more time for the creative part. We can for example setup websites for presenting your project and offer cloud based solution for sharing files and we can offer clients a cost efficient 3D renderings as images, videos or even ready for full-size golf-simulator, for better understanding of the design, for safety analysis or for marketing purposes.
