Whisper Creek Golf Resort, Christchurch, New Zealand

The design of Whisper creek has been carried out in association with Sir Nick Faldo and Faldo Design and will be their first golf course in New Zealand.  A very exciting project for New Zealand, it is a planned 18 hole tournament golf course winding through native wetlands, with an international golf academy, driving range and training facilities, for all students of the game of golf. The development includes accommodation, golf course apartments and villas. The project will be marketed throughout the world.
A finalist in the Canterbury V5 Economic Initiative, the project has already been recognised for its significant innovative economic contribution to the region and its design is environmentally driven including extensive areas of native plantings and the reinstatement of native wetlands.
Specifically, the design of the golf course seeks to:
  • provide a variety of golf shot-making, emphasising subtlety and strategy
  • deliberately integrate landforms into the strategy of each hole
  • create a natural, ecologically sound, attractive and harmonious landscape
  • maintain water quality and conserve water resources
  • attract wildlife including native birds with the creation of suitable habitats
  • provide for a long term environmental management plan, with regular monitoring and review.
