Dr. Martin Hawtree’s father and grandfather before him designed and laid out many courses worldwide but are perhaps best known for the Open Championship course, Royal Birkdale
. The Royal & Ancient Golf Club
of St.Andrews task Dr. Hawtree each year with the design modifications at all their Open Championship
venues before each tournament.
Dr. Hawtree’s fierce adherence to working with the natural environment has allowed him to create the most natural links golf courses on this site – Trump International in the North East of Scotland.
“I was made aware of Mr. Trump’s ambitions to produce a world-class, 18-Hole links course, following the great tradition of Scottish links golf, capable of one day hosting a major golf championship. My inspection of the site left me in no doubt of its exceptional qualities of environment as well as potential for golf of a very high order and I very quickly came to share his vision and seize a rare opportunity to create a new links course of quite extraordinary power, beauty, challenge and interest. It will produce simply the most dramatic, stimulating, invigorating stretch of golf anywhere I have seen in my career”. Dr. Martin Hawtree
