Planet Golf was established by golf commentator and golf course designer Darius Oliver, who spent several years traveling to more than 2,000 of the world’s premier golf courses for his Planet Golf series of books. Oliver not only wrote the Planet Golf books, he published Planet Golf USA and Planet Golf Modern Masterpieces. The articles and reviews featured on this website represent his well considered opinion.

The Planet Golf publishing business forms part of the Global Golf Group, founded as an independent, centralized golf consultancy. The stated aim of the Global Golf Group is to "Raise Golfing Standards Across the Globe". Our extensive golf course expertise allows our business to provide world-class consultancy services and help any golf club or golf course developer elevate the quality of its facility.

More and more, commentators like Darius Oliver are cautious of signature golf courses and unlikely to travel to see or promote new ones. Golf clubs and developers need to recognize, that their target customer base is now more discerning and the marketplace flooded with big name ‘signature’ golf course competitors that disappoint. We are able to assist on projects in a design capacity and also those that are outside our specialised course design skillset – where we can recommend appropriate project benchmarks be set, and help to draw up a shortlist of suitable golf designers.

Contact us to discuss your project, and how to achieve both excellence in golf course design as well as a compelling communication message.
