Jon Hunt of PGA Design provided the following article exclusively for Top 100 Golf Courses:
The course uses the natural topography to the maximum to ensure that the course creates a sense of place which could only be found in the area. A high water table ensures that the lakes will always be full and most of them are therefore in play.
The design aims to “touch the land lightly” and a large tree planting programme and the protection of the rich wildflower meadows is very much part of the design strategy. The course has multiple sets of tees on all holes to ensure that the course can be played and enjoyed by golfers of all levels.
Each hole has been planned to ensure that it is at its hardest from the back tees and gets progressively easier towards the front. The variation in landscape also provides fantastic views both within and around the site with a series of extremely memorable holes. As the first major new course in Lithuania, it hosts a golf academy on a large dedicated driving range with short game and putting practice areas immediately adjacent. Having worked across the world on hundreds of golf projects, PGA Design Consulting believe that this is one of the most beautiful courses in Europe.
