Pierfrancesco De Simone

RSSGCD Case Study

The Taormina Golf Course was planned in a very sensitive area by the river Alcantara, on a site that degraded over the years due to the presence of a landfill area that covered a large part of the property. The design work aimed to integrate the landfill with the agricultural landscape that dominates the surrounding area, consisting of mainly citrus fruit plantations.

I chose a new 18-hole links golf course I designed for the Marine Golf Club on the island of Sylt, in Germany, since it covered a number of interesting facets of a sustainable golf course development.
