About Us

The goal at Wesselman Golf Design is to design high quality golf courses which create value and are a pleasure to experience. Each project is unique and presents new challenges, opportunities and solutions. Great care is taken in planning the golf strategy and shot values that allow many options to the golfer. With playibility and shot values a priority, we excel at incorporating these qualities into each golf course design, while maintaining and enhancing the natural beauty of the surrounding environment.  The result is a golf course that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also a great test for golfers of all abilities. The result is a golf course that is fair, challenging, and truly enjoyable.

We strive to be a leader in environmentally sensitive golf course design and renovation work. We create golf courses that enhance the natural aesthetics of the land and provides for flexibility of shot values. Our designs take full advantage of every opportunity each site offers. As a result, our courses present a variety of risk/reward challenges that draw golfers of all skill levels to play them again and again.

Wesselman Golf Design provides all of you golf course design and renovation needs, including master planning services.
