This course is very special: a pure art landscape, completely modeled. Previously there were only fields, no trees, no shrubs, no water.Since I could rely on nothing grown, many thousands of cubic meters of earth had to be built up. So many hills are formed, reminiscent of British links courses, while ensuring that the course looks more difficult than it actually is.The vegetation consists only of native trees and shrubs.The bushes are usually in groups of five, so there’s always something blooming. A golf course is something both for the eyes and the mind.

The existing site is divided by a main road: 14 holes and driving range located in the north-west, the remaining four holes with clubhouse and putting green in the south-east area.
GC München - Riedhof
High level and friendly private course. The clubhouse is located in such a way, that an asymetric course was the consequence. Under the consultancy of Dr. James Beard (Texas University) it was the first course in Germany with sandgreens USGA Spec. Also the fairways were covered with sand 15 cm high, which was 10 cm fraised in. So we got an excellence surface to play on. Peter Shaw, the coursemanager, maintains the course with 9 men since beginning.

GC Düsseldorf - Grafenberg
The second nine holes outside of a racetrack. It needs coursemanagement and shotmaking.
In a narrow site we managed to position a very fine golfcourse. During planning I had to fullfill ecological requirements. Regarding a little creek, which runs through most of the course and has to be crossed several times. Not easy for beginners.
Very nice old course on a very private base. A few par 4 holes are reachable. That’s why I gave it small ondulated difficult greens. The redesign was on greens and tees, but also the layout of three holes were changed. It is played along lake Starnberg and the sight to the lake was opened on many holes.
G & LC Karwendel-Wallgau
My favourite course. The landscape is phenomenal and could not be better for golf. The construction costs were low because of so little earth movement. It is a nine hole course.
GC Schloss Weitenburg
River ‘Neckar’ is to cross five times. Absolutely unique in Germany. The low part of the course in the valley is flooted every second or third year since they guide the water of the roofs of the houses into the river. It is an exceptionally course in a beautiful landscape.
Tegernseer GC Bad Wiessee
The extention to 18 holes was done by Donald Harradine. There are beautiful sights to Lake Tegernsee. The mountain grass Poa Supina came natural into many fairways and gives a very playing surface. I was allowed to change 7 holes.
Golf Resort Franzensbad
I came a little late for planning and construction. Some holes were already in construction. But we managed to built a very interesting course. The fairways were built into the free space of the woods. So the course looks much older than it is. It is a nice landscape with some ondulation and in untouched nature. It needs more finesse than length.
