Just as soils affect the course, the climate has a huge impact on not only the grasses we employ but the landscape vegetation used to finish a project and protect the environment. Our firm has won many accolades from the use of indigenous plant materials to enhance a project. The types of trees and shrubbery make a significant difference in playability, effects on the golf shot, buffering of adjacent properties or provide the “park-like” setting so important during a round. Tree placement around the green can help or hinder growth of the grass, deciduous or evergreen trees can change the color palette or aesthetics of the links just as a flowering plant, indigenous grasses or tree leaves might adversely affect play or be the very thing that creates the distinctive “signature” of a course. The architect is fully involved with these decisions that will forever more dictate the experience the golfer has on the course.
