Did you know.....

... that between them Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Arnold Palmer, Greg Norman and Robert Trent Jones II have designed more than 1,100 completed golf courses worldwide. Equally noteworthy is the fact that just 2 standalone signature courses by these famous design firms features on the most recent GOLF Magazine World's Top 100 ranking list !

By contrast there are several co-designs on the Top 100, where a respected and talented golf architect teamed with a celebrity golfer to collaborate on design. From Dr Alister MacKenzie and Bobby Jones at Augusta National (a true collaboration) through to a number of modern gems by Bill Coore & Ben Crenshaw and one-offs like Loch Lomond, Harbour Town and Muirfield Village.

So before simply selecting a celebrity signature designer for your golf course, ask the question – do I want a Signature course or do I want a Great course?
