Bill O'Leary

After working numerous years with Nicklaus Design, Bill turned his attention, in 2003, to a project's aesthetics when he launched Landscape Design Services. He understands all too well that beauty goes hand-in-hand with the golf experience and knows that a critical aspect of a golf course's visual appeal is the surrounding vegetation and landscaping. He has studied agronomy and horticulture extensively, applying his knowledge to such acclaimed projects as Punta Espada Golf Club, the breathtaking oceanfront course at Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic, as well as The Concession Golf Club in Florida, Red Ledges in Utah, and Jack Nicklaus' home club, The Bear's Club, in Florida, among numerous others.

"Landscape design is an integral component of the golf course design process. A proper palette of plant materials can certainly enhance the beauty and visual drama of a golf course, but it can also become a component of the strategy."
- Jack Nicklaus

Through Landscape Design Services, O’Leary now offers golf course design clients a full menu of landscape services, from the initial consultation to plan documents that specify the ideal type and location of vegetation to frame and further beautify a golf course.
