The name Nicklaus has long been associated with greatness on a golf course. The 20 major championships. The electrifying finishes. The sheer will to win. Jack’s achievements are legendary.


However, the name Nicklaus transcends his dominance as a player and extends far beyond Jack alone. Today, Nicklaus also stands for superior golf course design, a result of Jack’s more than three decades as a renowned golf course designer and his sons’ and son-in-law’s solid reputations as designers themselves.
Together, they represent Nicklaus Design, a team of the world’s most accomplished golf course design associates, agronomists, industry consultants, and experts in golf course construction and marketing. Just as Jack once raised golf to a higher level, Nicklaus Design has elevated the standards of golf course design.

"As far as a raw piece of property goes it doesn’t get any better than Dalhousie. Everything was laid out in front of us. It was easy to see where to go."                                  - Gary Nicklaus
