Nelson & Haworth is a well-respected and sought after golf course design company known for creating fun, memorable and beautiful golf courses.
N&H work in many countries around the world, often in difficult terrain and climates, producing courses that are unique, beautiful and enduringly playable. Well known for designing award winning, challenging and enjoyable golf courses that sit lightly on the land, we often incorporate elements of local cultural significance into our designs.
Founded in 1987 by former senior partner Robin Nelson, Nelson & Haworth originally was part of the Hawaiian firm of Belt Collins, an engineering, planning and landscape architectural company well known for its pioneering work on resorts throughout Hawaii and South East Asia.
In early 2000, Robin Nelson, Neil Haworth and Brett Mogg bought out Belt Collins interest in the company and now operate the company as a partnership. Robin was based mainly in the US, while Neil and Brett continued their commitment to Asia from offices in Singapore and Hong Kong.
Late 2012 brought unwanted change to the company when Robin Nelson passed away after a long battle with ALS. Neil and Brett continue Robin’s pioneering design work as partners and owners of the business and in memory to Robin have retained the Nelson & Haworth name.
