creative & sustainable golf design

From Concept Through construction

Whether you're interested in a brand new golf course or working to transform an existing facility into a place for outstanding golf, Greengrass Golf Design is able to help.  Matt Schiffer has been in the golf industry since 2004, primarily as a designer but having also spent some time working on-site with a well-respected golf course builder.  

Our guiding tenets:

  • Grounded in classic design principles (i.e. strategic options, playability for all skill levels, variety, rhythm, balance) following half a lifetime of intensive study of the most evocative golf holes throughout the United States and United Kingdom;

  • Economically and environmentally sustainable design with consideration for maintenance and construction best practices;

  • Technical proficiency in all aspects of design, allowing for creativity and "outside the box" unconventional solutions;

  • Detail oriented and client focused.

Matt is a Member of the European Institute of Golf Course Architects.  He is also licensed as a registered Civil Engineer in California, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
