For many years, TC&M has been involved in a variety of golf-related projects in Hawaii and throughout the Pacific Basin. TC&M works closely with the golf course architect to carefully understand the design concept and strategy for each hole. TC&M designs the hardscape and softscape elements “above the turf” creating prestigious and award-winning courses for our clients. TC&M’s landscape designs for the golf clubhouse blends carefully with the entire golf course environment and provides a pleasant environment before and after the game.
Located on the black lava of Big Island’s Kona Coast, the King’s Course is one of Waikoloa’s two famous golf courses. The Tom Wesikopf designed course is carefully set into the lava beds creating a unique golf experience. TC&M worked closely with the contractor to insure the surrounding lava was not damaged. TC&M also worked with the clubhouse architect to integrate the beautiful building into the golf course.
Palm Hills Golf Resort and Country Club – Arakaki, Okinawa, Japan
Palm Hills Golf Resort is located on a hill overlooking the southern portion of Okinawa and the ocean. With an extensive master plan the resort currently includes an 18-hole golf course and clubhouse, with plans for a hotel and an additional nine holes. TC&M’s design for the magnificent clubhouse is carefully coordinated with the golf course and the resort’s master plan. The clubhouse features an extensive installation of interior plants in the common spaces.
TC&M worked closely with Greg Norman’s design team to incorporate this spectacular golf course into the Bali Nirwana Resort. The resort was constructed on farmland which grew rice. The course design features numerous rice paddies and other local features. The twelfth hole respectfully incorporates the famous Tanah Lot temple on the rocks offshore. The course has been called one of the most visually spectacular in Asia.
This private oceanfront golf community combines large lots around a Jack Nicklaus designed golf course. TC&M designed and helped implement the landscape master plan for the golf course and most of the resort, working closely with the developer and the construction team. TC&M’s design for the golf course amenities works carefully with the surround residential lots and other facilities.
An existing golf course, adjacent sugar cane land and a vintage hotel were combined to create an outer-island destination resort with two Jack Nicklaus designed golf courses, commercial centers and the Westin Kauai hotel (now the Kauai Marriott). TC&M provided the landscape architectural design for both courses and the clubhouse.
