Prestige Golfshire

IDG, under the former name of PGA Design Consulting, was appointed by Prestige Constructions to masterplan a new golf resort in Bangalore, India. The brief was clear – to design India’s premiere golf resort. The resort is located close to the new international airport of Bengaluru and built by Karnataka’s largest developer, Prestige Constructions. The resort spreads over 275 acres and includes a 300 bedroom Marriott hotel and spa with 7 pool villas, banquet halls and infinity pools as well as speciality restaurants and private massage huts. The resort also boasts over 250 luxury villas, a large conference centre and world class modern golf clubhouse.

IDG provided services from masterplanning, landscape design and golf course design as well as some more tailored services along the way. Very often, gaps between the consultant’s deliverables appear as the design process moves on. IDG can react quickly to plug these gaps offering services, in this case, such as detailed roads design, operational architecture consultancy, pre-opening consultancy & operator search / negotiation. Our broad based experience comes from a history of development as well as design having been principally involved in the creation of Europe’s largest chain of golf resorts in the 1990’s. IDG worked seamlessly with world class consultants such as MAPS designs of Singapore to create a development worthy of the title “Best Golf Resort Asia Pacific” in the International Property Awards 2009, 2010 and 2011.

· Create a sustainable water model for the entire resort to meet international sustainability standards.

· The intrinsic understanding that the most important factor of the resort design was the profit on real estate.
