Designing to develop

Designing to develop golfers of the future

Paul McGinley Golf Course Design was founded in 2005…

The keystone of the company is to deliver golf courses based on Paul McGinley’s design philosophy which is based on the classic strategic mode of H. S. Colt and Donald Ross course styles.

“I believe in designing golf courses that give a deeper understanding of the traditions of the game and that will build a relationship with you as it’s custodians.”
