What the Golden Bear had to say…

“When I first started, I only knew how to do one thing, and that was to put a golf course on a piece of ground that only a good player could play…”

Easy courses are fun occasionally, but I don’t think they stand the ‘test of time’ to be considered great courses…”

“..when I start to design a golf course, I don’t intentionally try to make it as tough as I can. I simply aim to create a golf course that will be a demanding test of skill for the accomplished golfer playing from the back tees. But, at the same time, I want to offer a challenging, yet enjoyable experience for the average or beginner player who plays from the appropriate tees and thinks his or her way around the golf course…”

“As I walk the site, my top priority is finding features such as native trees, grade variations or natural wetlands that can enhance shot values or scenically frame holes. I let the environmental surroundings shape the holes, so they fit the terrain. I never try to force an idea onto a piece of land.”

– Jack Nicklaus
