Caring for the environment is paramount in responsible golf course design. This often requires a great amount of thought and planning depending on the natural terrain, vegetation and wildlife that is present on the project site. These factors often limit what an architect and developer are able to do. However, with planning and care, these limitations can actually become an opportunity to create something very special.

The four following projects are examples of working with the environment while creating a golf course of the highest caliber.

Tierra Verde Golf Club at the Arlington Preserve in Arlington, Texas

Torrance Course and Kittocks Course at The Fairmont St. Andrews in St. Andrews, Scotland

Turtle Pointe Golf Club at the Laguna Quays Resort in North Queensland, Australia

The Headwaters Golf Club at the Teton Springs Golf and Casting Club in Driggs, Idaho
