Golf Story

A round of golf on a course created by one of the world’s leading golf course design firms, is bound to rank high on the list of any golfer. The name Nicklaus Design has long been associated with greatness of golf course design – and extends far beyond the man and his dominance as a legendary golfer. Today the name Nicklaus Design represents superior golf course design – the result of almost half a century experience in creating the most exceptional golf courses around the world.

In late 2018, after almost 5 years of intensive work, Jurmala Golf Club & Hotel opened its doors. Strategically located on 75 ha of land, between the capital city of Riga, and resort town of Jurmala, lies a spectacular 18-hole Jurmala golf course and equally meticulously planned 9-hole par-3 Academy golf course. This combination makes an interesting proposition for golfers of all skill levels.

No other design firm has produced more world-ranked or championship golf courses than Nicklaus Design, the industry leaders that have elevated the standards of golf course design since 1969.
