Arnold Palmer Design Company
Arnold Palmer Design Company has designed more than 300 courses around the world. We're proud of all our courses.
As a youngster, Arnold Palmer grew up working alongside his father, Deacon Palmer, the head golf professional and course superintendent at Latrobe Country Club. By the time he was a teenager, Arnold knew the bend of every fairway, the sand in every bunker and the contours of every green at Latrobe. His love and understanding of golf course architecture began early. Today as president of Palmer Course Design, Arnold is more passionate than ever about creating challenging golf course designs.
To understand that passion, all One has to do is watch Arnold and his design team walk the land of a potential golf course site. It’s like watching master sculptors contemplating a block of marble. Limitless possibilities are explored and ideas begin to flow and form: an undulating green here, a water hazard running adjacent to the fairway, perhaps a group of tall sycamore trees impeding one’s approach shot. From these ideas a plan evolves that will maximize the land’s potentialand meet one man’s meticulous standards—Arnold Palmer’s. Every course has to reflect Arnold’s love for the game.
For over 30 years, those standards have been the guiding force for more than 250 PCDC golf course projects covering 37 states and 20 countries. As a result, Palmer Course Design Company has grown to become one of the world’s leading golf course planning and design organizations.
