Quotes

“The Santa Lucia Preserve protects 20,000 acres of California’s coastal foothills just 2 miles from Carmel and Pebble Beach. The Preserve’s Tom Fazio golf course had to match the  conservation ethic of the community to recede into the landscape with minimum impact and maximum fair challenge to players of all abilities. Dennis Wise, as senior designer, oversaw the design and construction. Thanks to Dennis’ constant attention, the result is one of America’s Greatest Golf Courses that efficiently uses water and projects nature.”

Tom Gray

Founder, Santa Lucia Preserve

“Dennis Wise is a leading talent in the golf design profession. He combines a great sensitivity to the natural features of a site and its surrounding landscape with an extraordinary capability to make full use of those same landforms in creating some of finest courses that have been built over the last two decades. Moreover, from conceptual design on through construction and grow-in, Dennis is a consummate professional and team player.

At the Santa Lucia Preserve, Dennis helped us reach a key decision early on about the placement of the golf clubhouse–alongside the 18th green rather than behind it as the original routing had provided. He remarked to me at the time,“You gave us 20,000 acres of coastal California land to find the perfect 18 holes. I want to finish into that landscape, not a clubhouse!”
