Golf Course Designer
Puddicombe Golf is a family owned and operated business based in Nisku, Alberta that specializes in the design and construction of golf courses. Since its establishment in 1981, Puddicombe Golf has worked on close to one hundred golf course projects in Canada, U.S.A., New Zealand and Japan. Their projects have included new golf course development as well as the redevelopment of existing courses. They have experienced some of the most dramatic climatic and site conditions and are able to adapt to any challenge that Mother Nature sends their way.
In addition to golf course design and construction, the Puddicombe Golf team entered the role of golf course owner in 2001 when they spearheaded the development of RedTail Landing Golf Club in the Edmonton area. They not only designed and constructed this golf course but are also a major investor and control the operations at the course. They have taken on a similar role with Whitetail Crossing Golf Club where they are also a major investor and part of the operational management team.
This hands-on experience makes it possible for the Puddicombe Golf team to forecast and understand the vast needs of their clients from start to finish and allows them to share their first hand knowledge with their clients.
A company is only as good as the service and follow up it can provide, consistency in the people and workmanship is what Puddicombe Golf strives to achieve! The background of the team members is multi-disciplined. The common thread that links them is their understanding, not only of how to do their job, but why it must be done a certain way. Their commitment is for a quality product that will stand the test of time. They know that a golf course is a business and long-term success depends on being able to control operating costs as well as produce a consistent revenue stream. This is the foundation of a course owner’s dream!
Puddicombe Golf’s philosophy is to create an interesting variety of challenges where players will remember each and every hole, use every club in their bag and willingly return to play the next day. The key is to work with the land in order to make the course “player friendly” and ensure all hazards are visible. It is important to create a smooth flow of play and not discourage the recreational players with unreasonable tests. Par should be earned and bogey should be easy to achieve.
Areas of Expertise
Puddicombe Golf is very unique in that they have a great deal of experience not only with the redesign or remodeling of existing courses but have extensive construction experience with regard to existing courses. In fact, the forte at Puddicombe Golf has been the renovation of existing courses.

Either way, the company has the experience to perform design and or construction at the highest standards in the industry.
