Arnold Palmer Design Company
The story we tell is one of caring—
for the land, for golf, and for each other.

The story of a people is the story of their land,
their demands of it and their care for it.

The story we tell is one of caring—
for the land, for golf, and for each other.
We use cutting-edge tools to shape an ancient game, delivering environmentally and financially responsible operations that enhance communities and enrich lives.

Our approach honors our founder and his family, their deep respect and love for the earth, for the game, and for people; and it honors that nearly sacred moment when the work is done, we step onto the course together, and our story becomes yours.

Our Difference
APDC has created hundreds of successful golf courses and award-winning projects around the world, in 37 U.S. States and in 25 countries so far. We built the first golf course in modern China and we've continued to follow Mr. Palmer's approach to designing and building successful, respected, responsible courses in any environment around the world.

Along with this legacy we bring one of the most trusted names in golf—Arnold Palmer—to every project, and we bring the expectations of quality and character that come with it. Operating within the Arnold Palmer family of brands, which includes Bay Hill Club & Lodge, Arnold Palmer Enterprises and more, APDC has a wide network of contacts and in-house expertise that informs our appreciation and understanding not just of course design and construction, but also course and club operation, merchandising and marketing, and so much more.

Arnold Palmer's name on your project is a mark of excellence, but it also means you're part of a bigger story, one that's guided by the principles of the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation and its mission to help secure the future for the next generation.

Our job at APDC is to build the finest golf projects possible, but our greater purpose is to improve the planet and the lives of the people on it with beautiful, responsible fields of play. We look forward to doing that with you, and to turning your vision into a reality that will endure for generations, serving those seeking to play their best games on the best courses possible.
