As golf course architects, the primary objective of Declan Branigan Design is to create golf courses that are a true test of championship golf, yet are still enjoyable to play. Experience might suggest that this is an unlikely combination. However a return to the 'classic' values of golf in terms of strategic design can achieve this goal. A Declan Branigan Design golf course can never be regarded as an'assault' course, they reward the thinking golfer and this is as it should be.
All golf courses should reflect the uniqueness of the site on which it is constructed. Whereas no site will be completely suited to the game of golf, all will have their own individual characteristics. To use these characteristics in concert with newly created design features in a manner that will produce a beautiful golf course demands vision, understanding and skill.
