Wirth & Associates can play a key role in the planning and implementation of golf course communities.  The successful golf and residential development integrates a well-designed and challenging golf course and a high quality residential development.

Typically, Wirth & Associates provides the following services:

Site Selection
In association with a detailed analysis of demographics and market competition, Wirth & Associates can perform a detailed evaluation of the site's physical constraints and opportunities.  Prior to beginning a major planning and design effort, a pre-feasibility study of the site should be performed to determine the site's compatibility with the proposed program development.

Site Design
The integral value of a golf amenity can be increased when it is designed within the context of a master planned community.  State of the art golf course design, coupled with innovative land planning, maximizes the interface of golf to housing to increase valuable golf course frontage.

Environmental Sensitivity
Responding to the environment is a growing concern in the design of golf course communities.  Incorporating natural features into the desgn will maintain existing ecological systems and create identity for the golf course and the community.  Preserving these natural systems will reduce the cost of infrastructure improvements to both the golf course and adjacent community.

Project Management
Wirth & Associates has extensive experience in designing golf course communities that often require the expertise from a wide variety of professionals.  Wirth & Associates can assume the responsibility of prime consultant and coordinate a team of planners, other golf course architects, engineers, market researchers and environmental consultants to help ensure the success of your next golf course development.
