Not all renovations are created equal. Ours begin with researching the origins of a golf course and then studying the land to determine both its attributes and challenges. As the plans begin to form, the process is guided by historical considerations, logistical opportunity and feasible solutions.
The results of our creativity range from subtle to astonishing.
Considered a reverent restorer of classic courses, Bergin Golf Designs takes pride in honoring the roots of our projects while bringing them current with today’s technology, environmental stewardship, and best maintenance practices.

• Dunwoody, Georgia
An exciting finishing hole, the well bunkered par five 18th offers several positions on the approach with the optimal choice based on hole location.
• Chattanooga, Tennessee
Truly a breathtaking transformation, the par three 9th hole can be a heart pounder. With the Tennessee River just to the right, breezes are just part of the equation. Native fescues and rock outcroppings add to the intimidation factor on this gorgeous finish to the front nine.
• Sky Valley, Georgia
Set in a gorgeous valley with a twelve acre lake as its centerpiece, Sky Valley was blessed with a terrific site for mountain golf. By adding almost 600 yards in length and drastically improving the conditioning of the course, Sky Valley presents a totally new golf experience.
• Cashiers, North Carolina
Truly a hidden gem, Sapphire Valley experienced a mechanical makeover! Extensive drainage and bunkers that consistently perform have allowed this course to offer pristine conditions to their membership on a daily basis.
• Highlands, North Carolina
A perfect example of Bergin Golf Designs philosophy of making a golf hole more difficult for the best players and manageable for the recreational golfer. By shifting the putting surface to the right, challenging hole locations are evident, yet an ample fairway height, bailout area has been created left of the green.
• Kennesaw, GA
The last of three fun and exciting short par fours at Pinetree CC, the 14th is a birdie hole with teeth. By angling the devilishly contoured green from right to left, hole location and fairway positioning becomes paramount.
