David Williams Golf Design


David Williams Golf Design offers a full comprehensive service for all types of golf course development from reconstruction of existing holes through to construction of full championship layouts. The services range start with initial discussions and briefing with the client, and are completed by the handing over of the finished hole or course.

In the design process, detailed discussions are held with the club/client to establish the precise requirements, and alternatives produced if necessary for client decision. Once the final scheme has been adopted, all planning negotiations if necessary are undertaken by the practice to ensure a successful planning outcome.

Full detailed drawings are produced as well as detailed specification and bill of quantities, ensuring that the quantity and quality of information produced for the contractor equals that found in normal architectural or engineering projects. We believe strongly that full budgetry control can only be established by a thorough and complete design process, without reliance on “arm-waving” re-design on site or the use of “in-house” shapers.

Contract documentation is produced by DWGD who then undertakes regular site visits during the construction process. Dependent upon the scale and location of the project, such visits can be weekly, fortnightly or even monthly dependent upon these factors.

Full financial reporting is undertaken, ensuring that the client is made aware of the impact of any changes made to the contract sum, although with a reputation of producing detailed accurate design information, DWGD have an excellent reputation for bringing in projects – large or small – within budget and on programme.

DWGD pride themselves on providing a “one-stop shop” solution to golf course projects, taking the scheme from conception, through construction to completion, and this has been demonstrated on over 200 successful projects undertaken by them over the last 20 years.
