Growing Golf


Promoting growth of the game requires a grass-roots approach. We go beyond the traditional 18-hole golf course.

Creating golf facilities in emerging markets that make golf accessible to the masses is the best way to spark interest and encourage people of all ages to take up the great game of golf.   This healthy activity that would otherwise have seemed out of reach or inaccessible to the population can now be enjoyed by many.

The development of Practice and Training Facilities, as well as Putting Courses and academy or short courses creates an opportunity for new players to learn the game in a welcoming environment that is affordable and not intimidating to the beginner.

In turn, this model encourages educational opportunities to learn rules and etiquette of the game and  to prepare new players for life lessons and a fun, leisure activity that can be enjoyed for a lifetime.

Sample Golf Academy Design


There are so many ways to enjoy golf.

Putting Courses
We have designed and overseen the construction of many 9 or 18 hole putting courses. Our putting courses our modeled after a championship 18 hole golf course with par 3’s, 4’s and 5’s provide a wide variety of option to not only have fun but deliver training in all facets of putting.

Short Courses
Generally speaking, a short course is a more casual course that is less than 6,000 total yards and takes less time to play (often less than 90 minutes). We pride ourselves on our ability to imbue short courses with as much interest and enjoyment as many full 18-hole courses.  These courses may be 6, 9, 12, or 18 hole layouts. 

Golf Academies / Training Facilities
We design facilities so that they offer something for every type of player; that includes destination travelers or players at various levels of skill.

Driving Ranges
Regardless of whether you’re in the country or in an urban area, a driving range is a great place to practice your golf swing. Golfplan has designed ranges as stand-alone facilities as well as those that are attached to full courses.
