|Greg Norman’s Bucket List|
Despite being one of the most well-traveled men in the world, Greg Norman still has a bucket list with items he has yet to mark off.|
|Greg Norman Golf Course Design Celebrates 100 Courses|
Last month, Greg Norman Golf Course Design celebrated a landmark occasion with the opening of our 100th golf course at Eastern Golf Club in Australia.|
Greg Norman hosted the official grand opening in Yering, located within Melbourne’s famous Yarra Valley. As part of the day’s events, Norman conducted a coaching clinic for returned servicemen and women from the Greg Norman Foundation’s charity partner for the opening, Soldier On.
Since its inception in 1987, Greg Norman Golf Course Design has been one of Norman’s true passions in both business and life. His experience playing many of the world’s great golf courses over a 25-year career served as a catalyst to develop this interest and turn it into a thriving company. Today, GNGCD courses span the globe, covering six continents and 34 countries.
In addition to Greg Norman Golf Course Design’s 100 open courses, the firm currently has 42 more under contract and another 22 actively under development.
Greg Norman Golf Course Design and its projects have been recognized around the globe and have garnered numerous prestigious recognitions for design including:

|The Bluffs Ho Tram Named ‘World’s Best New Golf Course’|
On Saturday, Nov. 7, the World Golf Awards honored GNGCD’s The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip with the award for “World’s Best New Golf Course.” Hosted in Algarve, Portugal, the WGA serves to celebrate and reward excellence in golf tourism, golf course design and golf destinations.|
Votes were made by professionals working in the golf travel and tourism industry including senior executives, travel buyers, tour operators, agents, media professionals and golf tourism consumers.
|“As a golf course designer, you only get the opportunity to work with sites as good as this maybe a few times in your life. It took Mother Nature thousands of years to create these sand dunes, so we made every effort to preserve the natural character of the site. It’s a very special place. I firmly believe Vietnam will steadily evolve as another links golf destination as more courses like The Bluffs are developed along the coastal areas of the country in the future.” – Greg Norman|
Congratulations to Greg Norman Golf Course Design, Phil Falcone of Asian Coast Development, and Ben Styles and the entire team at The Bluffs!
