Correct choice of grass varieties and reduced irrigated areas, are the obvious trend for sustainable and environmental friendly Golf Courses.

Philosophy

With his unique style, Jorge Santana da Silva, strongly influenced by his experience with Robert Trent Jones, Cabell Robinson, and Bill Boswell, has developed a philosophy to make his projects maintain a natural landscape, taking advantage of original elements and protecting environmental values. It is a priority to preserve environment, nature appreciation and maintain natural resources.

Taking full advantage of computer aided design, I consider myself a tradicionalist, working “hands on” in the field, supervising on site all phases of construction especially artistic shaping.
