Nick Faldo will design a new course of par 3

It is not only championship courses that interest the great golf architects: thus Sir Nick Faldo, will design a new golf course in Kent in the south-east of England which will consist only of par threes and a putting green in Kent.

Facilities will be at Chart Hills Golf Club – where the main course was also designed by Faldo – which is currently undergoing extensive redevelopment. The six-hole par three course will be the first of its kind designed by the legendary golfer and will feature holes ranging from 50 to 100 yards.

Inspired by the career of the former world No. In addition, a 668 square meter putting green, also designed and produced by Faldo Design, will be installed next to the first tee. The design will offer both functionality and fun, once again featuring key elements from Nick Faldo's favorite greens from his major wins at St Andrews, Augusta National and Muirfield – including his own Valley of Sin.

Nicholas Alexander Faldo CBE (Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, England, July 18, 1957) known as Nick Faldo, is a former British golfer. He is considered the most successful British golfer in history.1 He achieved a total of 30 wins on the European Tour, earning first place on the Order of Merit in the 1983 and 1992 seasons.

He spent 97 weeks at the top of the world golf rankings from 1990 to 1994. He was a three-time winner of the Augusta Masters in 1989, 1990 and 1996, and a three-time winner of the British Open in 1987, 1990 and 1992. He also had three second-place finishes, three third-place finishes and a total of 18 top-five finishes in major tournaments.

His major victories also include two at the 1989 and 1992 World Match Play Championships, four at the 1978, 1980, 1981 and 1989 British PGA Championships, and one at the 1988 Volvo Masters. On his day he was the youngest participant to play a Ryder Cup at 20 years old and is the golfer with the most participations (eleven).

He helped the European team to win the 1995 and 1997 editions. He is the second highest scoring player for the European team, scoring 25 points in 46 games, and is also one of the players who has lost the most games in this competition.

In 2008 he captained the European Ryder Cup team, having the dubious honor of being the only captain who has not won the competition so far this century. Following his retirement, Faldo has worked as a golf commentator on the American Broadcasting Company television networks from 2004 to 2006, and then on CBS and the Golf Channel from 2007. He has also been a commentator for the British Open on the BBC. and SkySports.
