Gary Player is the only golfer in history to win the British
Open three times in three decades. Hes one of only five
golfers ever to win the Grand Slam of Golf, and he did it
at the tender age of 29.
He made world history again in 1974 when he shot the lowest
score ever in professional golf... a 59 in the Brazilian
Player has traveled farther than any other athlete to pursue
his passion for the game of golf, some 12 million miles
When youve accumulated as many miles, prizes, and
accolades as Gary Player - 163 career wins, including nine
major championships - the challenge becomes what to tackle
next. So, in the early 80s he turned his talents to
golf course design.
Now the Gary Player Design brand can be found on more than
200 championship-level courses all over the world.
Player himself is directly involved in the conceptualization,
master planning, design, and promotional efforts of each course
his design team creates. As he says, There is no substitute
for personal contact.
That personal touch is evident in all his courses, including
Guavaberry, where each hole features five tees to suit every
level of player, making for a challenging yet fair playing
Gary Player Design also specializes in incorporating the
natural features of the landscape into each course layout;
unique features like rock formations, indigenous vegetation,
and waterways become integral parts of the golf experience.
When you play Guavaberry or any other Gary Player golf
course, youll appreciate the personal touches that
make each one distinct and memorable.
