World Golf Awards 2016 Winner

Sir Nick Faldo



Meet the winner

Sir Nick Faldo and his team at Faldo Design are dedicated to the design and redesign of outstanding golf facilities on every continent, reflecting his international success as a player.

Each project is unique. Working closely with clients, Sir Nick and the team develop design solutions that meet the project aspirations and deliver high quality facilities that are economically, socially and environmentally sustainable. From championship and Par three courses to world-class practice facilities, two fundamental design principles define Sir Nick’s work – the provision of memorable and strategic golf and respect of the natural environment to create a seamless experience.

An instinctive and strategic appreciation of natural terrain has been a key element in Sir Nick’s success both as a player and as a course designer. By understanding the physical characteristics of a site and identifying its inherent golfing strategy, he creates golf holes that respond, compliment and merge into the local environment and natural flow of the landscape.

Sir Nick has a firm belief that it is this emphasis on strategy and the land itself that provides interest and inspiration for players, and offers golf in its most basic and enjoyable form.
