Our senior leadership team is involved in every stage of the design process, working in collaboration with our clients to develop solutions that exceed their expectations throughout the delivery process.

We constantly assess current industry trends, player preferences and market conditions that are impacting the golf industry, tailoring our approach to provide the best possible solutions to each golf development at every opportunity of the delivery process.
A NEW APPROACH
Golf course design is a visual process and one that can only be successful outside of a set of 2D plans. No matter how much attention to detail is on paper, the only way to truly “design” the course is to experience it during construction.
Our designs evolve in the field, which often translates into variations and modifications being made throughout the golf course design and construction processes.
MacKellar Golf courses are designed so that players experience the unique conditions and elements of each location, therefore requiring a wide-variety of shots during their round.
We encourage thoughtful decision-making processes that reward higher risk shots, whilst offering alternates for the less-skilled participant. Strategic design typically outweighs penal design standards to promote creative recoveries rather than penalise an errant shot.
