The name Nicklaus has long been associated with greatness on the golf course. His extraordinary talent and sheer will to win saw him claim 18 major championships - a record that may never be surpassed. With a number of electrifying finishes, his achievements are legendary.
The accolades that followed Jack Nicklaus' storied tournament career have accompanied the Golden Bear into his second career as a golf-course designer. Today the name Nicklaus stands for superior golf course architecture, the result of Jack's more than forty years experience.
The outcome of that dedication and ingenuity is a firm, Nicklaus Design, recognized throughout the world as an industry leader, with a résumé of more than 390 courses in 41 countries. No other design firm has produced more world-ranked or championship golf courses. Yet as unique as each design is, they all share Nicklaus Design's philosophy of enhancing the natural environment and creating courses that are both challenging and enjoyable for players of all levels.
If Nicklaus' mark on the 20th century was as a player, he is fast making his mark on this century as a designer, iconic name and brand. Jack has become a good-will ambassador who is embracing the challenge of introducing and growing the game of golf in countries around the world by designing the highest quality facilities.
