Southworth Golf’s construction management expertise focuses on multi-faceted golf and golf-related development.

Throughout the years, Southworth Golf has construction-managed some of the most environmentally sensitive development sites in the United States. Southworth Golf also built some of largest residential golf projects in the U.S. and the Caribbean and has worked with the industry’s top designers including Greg Norman, Bob Cupp, George and Tom Fazio, Tom Kite, David McLay Kidd, Rees Jones, Jack Nicklaus, P.B. Dye and Arnold Palmer.

Clients choose Southworth Golf because of their experience and history of success; their ability to understand a project’s constraints and opportunities; their administrative and financial management practices; their buying power and most importantly, their ability to combine design and building projects, resulting in the project being built properly and on budget, the first time.
