Nicklaus Design

WingHaven Country Club is St Louis' only Nicklaus Design course!!

Nicklaus Design, the global firm founded by golf legend Jack Nicklaus, and privately owned by the Nicklaus family, is widely regarded as the world's leading design firm.  The company has 408 courses open for play in 41 countries and 39 states.  Of those 408, Jack Nicklaus has been involved in the design of 273 courses.  At least 63 Nicklaus Design courses have been ranked in various national or international Top 100 lists, and no fewer than 88 Nicklaus courses have hosted a combined total of more than 600 professional tournaments worldwide, or significant national amateur championships.  Nicklaus Design currently has more than 40 courses under construction and projects under development in 46 countries.

Nicklaus Design employs close to 20 Design Associates worldwide, and their task is to ensure that Jack's vision, philosophy and design directive is implemented at each project.  They also serve in a lead role on each Nicklaus Design project, taking the successful philosophy long ago instilled and nurtured by Jack Nicklaus, and creating some of the country's and world's finest layouts, all carrying the most revered brand in the business.

Jack is proud of the designers he has taken under his wing and trained over the last 40 years.  To date, at least 22 past and present designers who have supported the work of Nicklaus Design have gone on to earn membership into the prestigious American Society of Golf Course Architects.  That number includes 9 currently supporting Nicklaus Design services.  Also, as a clear sign of loyalty, 6 Design Associates, as of 2007, have been with Nicklaus Design for at least 17 years or more.

Nicklaus Design truly gives credence to the axiom - you are often only as good as the people you surround yourself with.

WingHaven Country Club is very proud of its association with Jack Nicklaus and the Nicklaus Design Team!
