Terra Nova Planning & Research, Inc.

Resort and Golf Course Planning

Since its inception, Terra Nova has been involved in both land use and environmental planning for a variety of golf course and resort developments. Among these are several major hotel developments, including Ritz Carleton Hotel, Mondrian Hotel, Hardrock Hotel, Canyon Hotel, and Rosewood Hotel. We have also provided environmental guidance to world class golf course designers, including Pete Dye, Fred Couples, Brian Curley and Tom Doak for such courses as the Canyons at Bighorn, The Palms, Stone Eagle and Desert Cove. Other important projects include the Robert Trent Jones, Jr's Desert Dunes course and the expansion of the landmark Desert Island development in Rancho Mirage with its unique and economically designed golf course by Desmond Muirhead. Terra Nova's input begins early in the process and we work as an integral part of the design team, identifying environmental and other assets that warrant protection and thoughtful integration into the overall design.
