Arguably the most successful athlete-turned-businessman in the world, Greg Norman is known as much for his entrepreneurial spirit in the boardroom as his dominance on the golf course. The internationally renowned “Great White Shark” has won more than 90 tournaments worldwide, including two Open Championships, and holds the distinction of holding the No. 1 position in the world golf rankings for 331 weeks. As one of the most prolific players in the game’s history, his astounding career culminated in 2001 when he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame with a higher percentage of votes than any other inductee in history. In 2009 and 2011, Greg served as the Presidents Cup captain of the International Team and his strong influence in the game continues today.
Greg Norman now transcends the game of golf, with over a dozen companies around the world bearing his name and the iconic shark logo as part of the Greg Norman Company, which he leads as Chairman & CEO. His internationally recognized brand boasts more than 100 golf course designs across six continents, a global real estate collection, award-winning wine, golf-inspired lifestyle apparel and a diverse investment division. Across all facets of business, the Greg Norman Brand consistently delivers the quality that his name is synonymous with and continues to inspire people to attack life.
Greg Norman Golf Course Design (GNGCD) is recognized as the premier signature golf course design firm in the world, featuring over 100 courses opened across 34 countries and six continents, with many having won prestigious design awards.
Greg’s experience playing many of the world’s great golf courses over a 25-year career served as a catalyst to develop his interest in golf course design. Because each design bears his name, he personally makes it his mission to be involved with every step of the design process, from walking the virgin site, to planning and construction, through to opening day.
Notable for his environmental stewardship, Norman’s “least disturbance” design philosophy creates golf courses that enhance their surrounding environment and highlight each property’s natural features. We believe that we have a responsibility to our customers, to the communities and the environment in which we have a presence, which means sustainability is the only acceptable model for our business.
We take seriously the legacy we create in designing and developing each golf course. GNGCD is committed to building lasting relationships with our clients and making a global impact by creating courses that withstand the test of time.
