"The design of a golf course is a more sophisticated process than many people imagine, because it involves not only understanding the game, but also a great vision and planning. To a large extent, the topography of the land will determine what the field will look like. My goal is always to work with nature, the environment and the characteristics of the terrain. " - Gary Player Why Gary Player Design Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player are known as The Big Three, the three greatest golf players in history. Gary Player won 162 tournaments during his career. He is the only one who has won both the PGA Tour Grand Slam and the Senior Tour.
