For players of every skill level, golf should
be an exhilarating experience — fair, and above all, fun to play.
Our designs embody this goal. Each well-played shot should be amply
rewarded, but not all less-than-perfect shots should be penalized… an
old concept often overlooked today. We combine the perfect blend
of innovation with tradition to make our courses challenging yet
friendly to the expert golfer as well as the novice. We know that
repeat play is the lifeblood of any successful golf operation.
Our courses are played over and over again because each round leaves
the golfer satisfied and eager to return.
Aesthetic appeal cannot be underestimated in
its contribution to both the game of golf and golfer satisfaction.
We design a course with a deep reverence for the inherent beauty
of the land. There is creativity and simplicity in our designs
that result in a soft and natural look. Rather than forcing a hole
upon the site, each is carefully crafted to fit the land, showcasing
nature's beauty. Each course should be a visual masterpiece, adding
an immense measure of enjoyment to the game.
Economics of Design
Today, it is more important than ever to give
the golfing public a dramatic and distinctive course to play at
a reasonable cost. Jerry Matthews Natural Course Design creates
innovative and exciting golfing environments without incurring
unnecessary construction costs or producing excessive maintenance
costs. Rather than moving large amounts of earth to obtain a look,
we allow the land to suggest the placement and flow of the course,
then artfully sculpt what nature has provided. Over the years our
timeless and enduring design philosophy combined with practical
construction practices have proven to be key elements in the economic
success of our clients.
