Testimonials

“From the very beginning when I asked for his professional services he spent time not just understanding what we were trying to achieve, why we were doing it but as importantly what was actually currently on the ground. He provided options and together we refined and evolved to what we now have. The golf course delivers on the brief that it needs to be fun for new players as well as fun for good players. Critically though this was done within the context of the Master Plan for the entire facility that he developed. It was his vision to put the driving range, hub, golf course and all the other facilities we wanted into a cohesive plan which over time can evolve.

Golf it! is a ground breaking concept and Scott’s skill brought it to life.”

Martin Slumbers, CEO The R&A, Regarding Golf iT! in Glasgow. May 2024

 

“The course looks absolutely stunning and every single golfer, without exception, has said how wonderful it is and that the views are exceptional. Most of that is down to Scott’s own design, imagination and flair and I am very grateful for all the effort he put into making the course so special.”

Graham Wylie, Owner of Close House Hotel and Golf. England, UK

 

“During both the design and construction phases their can-do attitude to problem solving was refreshing”.

Ben O’Malley, GM of Millbrook Country Club, NZ

 

“RWGC set out to build the best club golf course in New Zealand and to be one that golfers from all around the world will travel to play. We are confident that ambition is being realized.”

Peter Cutfield, Chairman, Royal Wellington Golf Club, NZ

 

“When I was looking for a golf architect I wanted someone who would understand the landscape and have the flair to design a course of the highest quality in terms of; aesthetics, a player’s and playing perspective; being practical in terms of forward maintenance; and to bring the construction in on time and on budget. Scott is that man! And what’s more he brings competence and professionalism and an easy management style and enthusiasm that is infectious and at no extra charge – a little bit of magic to it all!”

Derek Young, Chairman Kersewell Resort Group, Scotland, UK.

 

“Scott is a very good course designer and it’s interesting to go around a course and see what he sees. I have my own ideas about courses and the way they should look, but listening to somebody like Scott, who has a lot of experience, makes you appreciate how much more there is to take into account when you are designing one.”

Lee Westwood, CH Magazine, 2014.
