“My role in The Flag…”

Jack Nicklaus is synonymous with greatness and The Flag is proud that Jack’s lasting legacy will include overseeing course design at each of its signature resorts.

Inspired by iconic courses like St. Andrews, Augusta and Pebble Beach where he captured several of his record 18 major championships, Jack’s goal is to bring unique and creative design elements into the design of every course, with the purpose of providing golfers with multiple options.

“I don’t want somebody to stand on the first tee, shake hands with somebody, and then on about the sixth hole, think about the shot they are going to play. I want them to think about the shot on the first hole. I want them to think about their second shot. If they miss the green, I want them to have think about what they have to do around the green.”

every course

As The Flag adds new locations each year, Nicklaus Design will ensure every one is its own unique challenge, seamlessly integrated into the natural landscape and enhancing its surroundings.
