We provide a full range of design services for new projects as well as redesign and renovation of existing golf courses. Our expertise has shown that not only means design the golf course’s unique beauty and delivers a multitude of different golf shots, angles, a length of holes and hazards’ complexity but ultimately, a careful design will also help you avoid crucial mistakes during its construction and maintenance in the future.

We’re confident that golf course design must be consonant with the natural landscape as well as responsive to maintenance budgets. 

Therefore, during a design development phase, we draw special attention to the following investigations: 

  • A client’s objectives and requirements
  • Feasibility study of the land area (examination of its geology, topography, analyses of soils and biodiversity of primary vegetation, water resources availability, etc.)
  • Comprehensive research and assessment of the other contributing factors, such as geotechnical and climatic data, market demand, economic factors, permitting and approval process, demographic characteristics, local infrastructure, potential safety issues, environmental restrictions, etc.

 Eventually, a client gets the following deliverables for consideration: 

  • A conceptual and strategic design plan for the golf course (including practice area, maintenance zone, sites for a clubhouse, real estate development, vehicular circulation, etc.)
  • Project Master Plan
  • Graphic illustrations or 3D Modeling of the design concept
  • Routing Plans
  • Construction drawings and plans of the original and modified contours of the terrain, earthworks, drainage, irrigation, turfgrass establishment, and cart paths scheme, etc.
  • Construction bids and specifications

Ultimately, our client receives a design of a beauteous, authentic while also a sustainable golf course.


Our shaping staff and heavy equipment operators have high proficiency and extensive expertise in earthwork activities with due regard to both required protocols’ and safety conditions’ compliance. Within various projects, we have been working with diverse amounts of excavated, displaced, substituted earth – from 100,000 to 1 000 000 cubic yards.

We start rough shaping on a golf course with excavation and leveling of the sub-base that must be level and sustainable as the entire profile rests on it. In cases of planned manufactured root zone usage, we excavate the existing topsoil and truck it away.

In certain climates, rock extraction in the sub-base may be requisite: Caused by the frost heave, rocks can completely contaminate even a perfect sports pitch. That is why all rocks down to 1-inch diameter must be eliminated that sometimes means quite a challenge.

Thorough terrain examination prior to start is imperative as, depending on an architectural design, every project involves diverse volumes of earthworks and lake excavation processes that would significantly impact a project’s overall cost.

Lake excavation and mass excavation usually compose the most of earthwork operations and provide ground material for elevating sites' grades for real estate, roads, clubhouse, etc.


When speaking of golf courses, drainage is required to quickly remove water from a playing surface allowing a course to remain playable after and even during heavy downpours. Proper drainage also prevents turf damage which may be caused by puddles’ accumulation or stagnant water on a pitch remaining for too long.

To develop a drainage system in a proper way, being alert to a ground-water level in the given region as well as to a particular soil structure is of great importance. Some contractors frequently install drainage pipes conventionally, disregarding any characteristic features of a water movement within a specific soil type in the first place and without consideration of a chemical and physical soil parameters’ analysis. 

Soil classification is based on its structure; this is precisely soil characteristics that play a decisive role in defining its drainage capacity. Soil categorization is based on the relative percentage of sand, silt, and clay in a soil’s structure.

The soils with clay and/or silt prevalence contain rather small pores while soils with a high sand content, as a rule, are designated to have large pores. Given that a downward water movement in soils containing large pores is more rapid, sandy soils’ drainage capacity is higher by far than that of either silt or clay soils. Furthermore, it should be remembered that compaction in a soil clogs the pores and, consequently, deteriorates the drainage.

A thorough, qualitative analysis of the soil, as well as its characteristics and potential in the first place, would facilitate the decision-making on proper technical solutions, which afterward, would help avoid unnecessary costs in the future. To prevent clogging of a course’s profile and to ensure a free water movement underneath the soil, along with soil drainage capabilities, the efficiency of used materials is tested as well. Generally, we focus on installing main line drainage (fairways, green surrounds, etc.) and feature drainage (bunkers, tee, greens). Technical works on both surface and sub-surface drainage systems should be an ongoing part of each and every good overall maintenance plan.


If we consider an irrigation system as a living organism, then a pump station is a heart, irrigation pipes are veins, wires - nerves, valves and sprinklers are hands and legs, and a control system is a brain of irrigation.

TORO® Lynx® controlling system captures both automatic and manual irrigation regimes; controls a golf course’s irrigation by setting runtime minutes or application inches and lets the system calculate other parameters; provides a daily summary of how an irrigation system performed.

Golf course irrigation systems’ design we develop is efficient, preserving water resources, and responsive to state and site requirements. During its development, we take into account diverse soil types, areas of irrigation, and turf species. Infrastructure design deliberation includes pump station installation, sprinkler and piping emplacement, sprinkler coverage and spatial arrangement, and serviceability. We install and renovate irrigation systems using the latest technologies which save resources and workforce resulting in reducing costs and increasing potential revenues due to upscale playability and golf course aesthetics.

Golf course irrigation can be executed through either decoder or satellite system. Decoder system’s advantages include, in particular, low cost, the absence of visible components on a course, as well as use of low voltage and smaller quantity of wires. While the satellite system has proved to be easy to maintain and troubleshoot as well as to have more effective protection against overvoltage.

In our work, we use materials and machinery from the world-famous brand TORO, which, for no less than the past entire century, proved to remain the top-ranked leader of the golf irrigation industry.

TORO products guarantee operational integrity for several decades, have unique protection against lightning, are easy to disassemble and maintain. TORO golf segment items provide clients with the alternative to customize a certain sprinkler for a specific location or time of year. All of these features result in a significant decrease in the amount of water consumption and billable man-hours.


Of all the golf course construction stages, green, tee, and bunker construction is definitely the most crucial and demanding.

Green is the most important part of a golf course and, from our perspective, a duly constructed green must resist compaction, retain nutrients, as well as enable sufficient water and air infiltration and percolation. Greens should be built in areas with plenty of sunshine and good drainage. The size of greens depends on exactitude of contours, approach shot length, hazards emplacement, and maintenance practices. The shape of greens is affected by the approach shot distance, direction of prevailing winds, and slopes of the terrain.

To construct an adequate teeing ground, we start with an investigation of a site’s growing conditions and, to size a tee box properly, consider a volume and types of play it should allow. The more access points tee box will have (to spread golfers flow over a large area) and the more sunlight it will receive daily (at least 8 hours required), the more enduring and wear-resistant tee will be. Tee boxes might be constructed either separately or in sections, rather big ones so that an operator could save time for cutting. To encourage walking, we locate teeing grounds in close proximity to previous greens, and to provide safe conditions for both players and course workers, we, generally, keep the tee sides’ slope at approximately 18 degrees (3:1) or less. Tee boxes are the only features of a golf course to be leveled so as to provide small slope while also straight surface for golf hit comfort.

Whether it’s a fairway, greenside or a waste bunker, in our work, we opt for lining it with a water impervious barrier or spray-coat a bunker bottom with such a barrier that will prevent weeds growth and avert mud with sand intermixing. We have rich experience in construction sand bunkers of diverse shapes and sizes, bearing in mind that simple shapes are easier to maintain and, as a rule, are more pertinent in gently rolling terrains while more complicated shapes will better suit rugged areas.


What distinguishes a golf course from all other sports fields is its integration into the Mother Nature; we believe construction of a golf course is akin to sculpturing landscape. With that in mind, the main goal of our golf course architects lies in working with different landforms rather than struggling against them. Not only will such our environmentally responsible approach contribute to the golf course’s authenticity, but it will also keep construction costs down.

Final shaping of a golf course is a process during which a shaper transforms a terrain after rough shaping and initial earth shifting, drainage and irrigation installation, into an appropriately contoured final output that the architect envisioned during the design development.

Working closely with a golf course architect, engineers, and other key design and construction personnel, in a process of final shaping, we eventually contour all of the golf course feature elements, such as greensites, sand bunkers, fairway areas, etc.

Our competent machinery operators have long-standing experience in shaping golf courses across the world. What plays a pivotal role is the proficiency of our skilled shapers in working at diverse terrains – from rocky to peat-bog landscapes, from water-logged to sandy soils, – as does their capacity to transform a natural landscape into the masterpiece of golf course architecture.
