It's all in the bounce
Hawtree's unique genius shines through at Tarandowah
Welcome to Tarandowah
Pure Golf is rooted in the history and traditions of the game. It is wind swept and has undulating fairways and greens protected by deep, sod-faced bunkers and bordered by wispy fescue grasses. Pure golf plays dry and fast and all the trouble is on the ground between the golfer and the hole. Pure golf requires courage, skill and strategy. Experience Pure Golf today!
Tarandowah's course designer, Dr. Martin Hawtree is a third generation English golf course architect in the longest serving golf design office in the world. His grandfather, Frederick G. Hawtree, began the business in 1912, associating himself with J.H. Taylor, 5-time British Open winner.
||Hawtree has been consulted on some of the major links courses in the UK and Ireland: Lahinch, Royal Dublin, Portmarnock, and Royal Birkdale - an Open Championship links course that all three generations of Hawtree have worked on. Martin has worked a great deal in Scotland and was consulted by the R&A over alterations at a number of Open Championship venues including Carnoustie, St. Andrews and Muirfield.
He is currently being consulted by Montrose, Nairn, Royal Aberdeen, Prestwick, and the Links Trust of St. Andrews, all celebrated as some of the great links courses of Scotland. He also recently finished building the acclaimed Trump International Scotland for Donald Trump and has laid out plans for a second course on the same site.
