About the Nicklaus Companies

When Sports Illustrated named Jack Nicklaus the greatest individual male athlete of the 20th century, it was noted that, “His record has set the standard for golf greatness.” Why was he able to achieve such towering success? Passion for the game, dedication to excellence, confidence in his ability, and a profound respect for the game of golf.

Jack brings that same level of experience, expertise, and achievement to The Nicklaus Companies, which is dedicated to promoting excellence in the game of golf, preserving its great traditions, and growing the game.

Whether it’s award-winning course design, world-class golf communities, industry-leading apparel and equipment, instruction and insight for players of every caliber, or giving back to the game and local communities, The Nicklaus Companies embody the highest standards of excellence and achievement. That’s why we’ve received prestigious recognition by golf design’s leading organizations, such as the Golf Course Builders Association of America, the American Society of Golf Course Architects, and Golf World’s Architect of the Year award. After naming Jack the most powerful person in golf for an unprecedented sixth consecutive year, Golf Inc. said, “The fact is that he keeps adding to his legend, at the design table and in the business world.”
