“Nicklaus Design is excited to be involved in Halifax, Nova Scotia. While our firm has a rich history in Canada, we have never been involved in a project in this region and we are appreciative of the opportunity given to by the Terra Firma team.
They have not only given us their faith, but they have also provided us with a unique and wonderful site that has great variety including forest, wetlands, and lakes. Our challenge now is to take this wonderful canvas and provide the members and guests at Forest Lakes with a golf experience that is both enjoyable and memorable, and one of which we can all be proud.
We look forward to our continued relationship with Terra Firma and the opportunity to create a very special golf course for this community and the people of Nova Scotia.”
